Simon's Choice

COMING SOON! Simon's Choice, by Charlotte Castle...

Charlotte Castle's debut novel, 'Simon's Choice' is out Summer 2010.

When Simon Bailey's dying nine-year old daughter asks him what will happen when she dies, he assures her that she will go to heaven. When she asks who will live with her, he makes an offer that further rips his family apart - he offers to go with her.

Simon's Choice is an exploration of grief, questioning the traditional understanding of loss and taking us on a journey from the fibre-glass fabricated world of Disneyworld, to Hindu practices of self-immolation in India
