About The Book

‘You're left with no choice but to put life on hold while you race to the end’ Woman and Home
I read it in 24 hours with my heart in my mouth. So good!’  Julie Cohen, author of Together

Cornelia Blackwood lives a quiet life. She has no friends, no children. When she goes to the corner shop to buy milk, people whisper behind her back.
Her one constant, her rock, is her husband. But when he doesn't come home from a work conference, she is left alone to try to pick up the pieces.

And before long, the secret her husband has hidden from her for all these years is laid bare. The one thing she longs for most is the one thing he kept from her. And now she can think of nothing else.

Everyone knows what Cornelia did all those years ago.
But no one knows what she will do next. 

From a supremely talented storyteller, The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood is a powerful novel of motherhood, loss and loneliness and how we can make damaging choices when pushed to our emotional edge. 

‘A powerful, compelling and emotional rollercoaster of a novel’ Hannah Richell, author of The Peacock Summer
‘A powerful and talented voice' Rachel Hore, author of Last Letter Home
'A brave and moving story about how much can be lost and what happens next' Alison Moore
