'Pete, look mate I'm sorry but there's no easy way to say this. Lydia's dying.' These are the words Peter Mackenzie wakes up to on a chilly March morning in 2012. Over the next forty eight hours his life is thrown into chaos catapulting him into the decision to leave the UK and return to Australia, the country from which he was exiled thirty years earlier. The opportunity to see Lydia his mother, one last time means confronting his family, friends and the community of Lazarus that he abandoned as a teenager. Lazarus Remembered is a powerful family drama that explores the challenges within non-traditional family structures. A story about secrets and lies, love and loss, reinvention and redemption but most of all about how the pressure to conform to society’s expectations can tear lives apart.Show more
Winner of the Guardian Children's Book Prize 2015 I'm the one who's left behind. I'm the one to tell the tale. I knew them both... knew how they lived and how they died. Claire is Ella Grey's best friend. She's there when the whirlwind arrives on the scene: catapulted into a North East landscape of gutted shipyards; of high arched bridges and ancient collapsed mines. She witnesses a love so dramatic it is as if her best friend has been captured and taken from her. But the loss of her friend to the arms of Orpheus is nothing compared to the loss she feels when Ella is taken from the world. This is her story - as she bears witness to a love so complete; so sure, that not even death can prove final. (P) Hodder Children's Books 2016Show more
