Summary of the Book:
London-based sculptor Iris’ friend Tom has disappeared without a trace during a trip to Austria. Worse still Iris has no recollection of what happened when she went searching for him.
Stranger still she regularly hears Tom’s voice in her head?
Fearing that she may be losing her mind she consults a therapist, to bring back the memories she’s temporarily erased.
The focus of the therapy quickly shifts towards the only two people who have mattered to her. Tom, the piper, a Sixties-influenced musician who reignited her creativity; and Matilda, her childhood friend, who encouraged her to pursue her artistic ambitions whilst inspiring her through her Wiccan practice.
What is it that Iris, the fairy in the trees as Tom called her, has buried deep inside that her mind, and will she be able to dig up the clues as to what happened to Tom?
The Piper and the Fairy is a story of obsession, intense friendships and alternative realities that will keep you guessing until the final scene.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The author sent me a copy of the book to read and review. I knew from just reading the blurb about the book that this book was going to be a lot to take in. I was not ready for what I found within the pages. Iris is a lot to process as she is looking for Tom and she has her friend Matilda long for the ride. It was a blend of obsession and realities beyond knowing. It kept me on my toes with each turn of the page. I wanted to know what happened next. This is the first book in a trilogy so I feel there is still a long way to go. I want to know more about what goes on in Iris’s head and those that are in her life. It did seem to get a little off track at times, but I did not mind that all too much.
My Rating of the Book: 3 1/2 Stars
