Book Beginnings on Fridays - The Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer

Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this meme is for you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name. There's a linky list on the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.


My book beginning this week is The Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer.


I dream about Carmel often. In my dreams she's always walking backwards.


The Girl in the Red Coat  


Book Description:


She is the missing girl. But she doesn't know she's lost.

Carmel Wakeford becomes separated from her mother at a local children's festival, and is found by a man who claims to be her estranged grandfather. He tells her that her mother has had an accident and that she is to live with him for now. As days become weeks with her new family, 8-year-old Carmel realises that this man believes she has a special gift...
While her mother desperately tries to find her, Carmel embarks on an extraordinary journey, one that will make her question who she is - and who she might become.


  1. I'm not sure I could do this one - such a creepy, icky feeling wells up from that blurb!

  2. Hmmm. Very intriguing. I look forward to your review of The Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer. :)
