Holly Starcross

Written by Berlie Doherty

Holly Starcross Synopsis

Holly's world came apart when she was six, when her mother took her, and ran away from her father and his farm. From that day on she has had no contact with him, and can barely remember him. But eight years later, with a new family around her, she feels very alone and longs for that half-remembered life. She is starting to question who she really is, and then a stranger appears... This is an absorbing and moving book about identity, fatherhood and family.

Holly Starcross Press Reviews

Holly Starcross is a beautiful, moving story with characters to believe in and a sense of the uniqueness of every human life. * TES * This novel is beautifully written in a gentle yet compelling style and will have the reader asking all sorts of questions about what is important in life. -- Jackie Marchant * Carousel *
