The Lovereading4Kids comment
‘I think how readily people believe lies, and how easily the truth can look like a lie.’ A thick fog of paranoia and fear pervades this novel. It’s set in a fictitious society divided into them – the Brotherhood, a religious sect with strict rules over things like men and women’s clothing, apparently professing love and tolerance but behind terrorist attacks - and us, ‘citizens’, grey, worried, cowed by the ‘terror threat’. The parallels with today are clear to see. K Child is a citizen. Just fifteen she’s an orphan, lonely, isolated and an easy target for the handsome young man who saves her from a bomb attack, and then recruits her to spy for the secret services. Soon she’s living with the Brotherhood, where she finds that not everything she’s been told is true. The plot twists and turns as K struggles to work out who she can trust, and who she really is. There are echoes of Orwell and Kafka in this tense thriller, which thoroughly respects its readers’ intelligence. ~ Andrea Reece
A Piece of Passion from Publisher, Barry Cunningham Groups, religions, teams . . . sometimes we all seem intent on attacking each other, misunderstanding what we believe in and blaming someone else for it! Jeannie Waudby drops us straight into a nail-biting thriller, a story that pulls and pushes us in different directions as the betrayals and suspicions build up. But in the end, love reaches out and finds the truth – it always will. Thank goodness. Thank Jeannie. It’s a cracker of a book.
