Review quote

'Half Life is quite something. I just loved Sarah's idea of what it means to be a ghost.' Tracy Chevalier, New York Times bestselling author

'Brilliant portrayal of a cruel disease.' Helena Frith Powell, international bestselling author

'Sarah writes beautifully and the sense of foreboding or unease is brilliantly conveyed. I've never read anything quite like it, although I'd suggest echoes of Mary Shelley or Edgar Allan Poe.' Clare Balding, award-winning broadcaster, journalist and author
