The Eyes of Heaven by Beverley Cooper
Late night, on a lonely country road, fifteen year old Eloise Bernhardt has an extraordinary encounter with an unknown being. What she sees changes her life forever. This is a story of a mother and her teenage daughter who have lost their way, and how they are fighting their way back to loving each other. It is a story that questions what we believe in, examines how we judge each other and asks the universal question; "What is out there, beyond the stars?" By turns funny and touching, with a little of the supernatural thrown in for good measure. "Cooper's lovely homage to a place very much like Blyth is about many things. It's about family and community, about fitting in and feeling alone, about finding one's own path amid the rocks and boulders of life".
