In Search of Adam

by Caroline Smailes
£7.99   paperback  The Friday Project Limited (2008)

In Search of Adam by Caroline Smailes Motherless, rootless and unprotected, Jude Williams' childhood is fractured by the horror and experience of sexual abuse, forcing her to exist somewhere and nowhere in-between childhood and adulthood.
 
Caught within the limitations of her own language and trapped within a family secret, Jude becomes the consequence of her mother's tragedy. As she moves through the 1980s, Jude's life is buffeted by choice and destiny and she collects experiences that layer her personal tragedy and plunge her into the darkest of worlds.
 
The reader will be unable to put this book down as it careers towards its shocking yet inevitable conclusion.
