The way in which [Alyson Rudd] conveys difficult emotions through dialogue is the real highlight of this story’ Sarah D (Netgalley)‘From the opening pages, the tale shimmers with grief, loss and enough period detail to lend authenticity to what is, after all, a slightly incredible (in the truest sense) story.

She is a sports journalist at The Times and lives in South West London. She has written two works of non-fiction. The First Time Lauren Pailing Died is her first novel.An emotional, uplifting and magical novel for fans of Kate Atkinson• Sliding Doors meets The Lovely Bones, this is a love story – and a loss story.• Based on the concept of parallel worlds, it follows Lauren, a girl who dies several times, each time waking up in a slightly different life to the one she just left.• It also follows the lives of the people Lauren has left behind, showing how they are affected by the loss. Ultimately life-affirming, it examines death, grief and love – with a touch of magic.• With death high on the non-fiction agenda – This is Going to Hurt, With the End in Mind, When Breath Becomes Air – this anticipates the trend in fiction.• Ambitious but beautifully executed, with touches of nostalgia as it moves from 1960s Cheshire through to contemporary London and weighty themes and issues at its heart, this is reading group fiction at its best.Competition: I am I am I am; Behind the Scenes at the Museum; Transcription
