What is Left Over After

Natasha Lester

As she revisits the legacy of a strange, sometimes magical childhood in France, Gaelle finds unexpected help from a thirteen-year-old stranger.
As if she was experiencing her childhood all over again, she must ask: when you lose everything you love, what is left over after?

‘Lester writes lyrically and compellingly, with a host of multi-layered characters that will have you rooting and rejecting them in their own ways. Readers are lead through a complex maze of motherhood, marriage, childhood and learning to find yourself when all is lost. More so, it’s about the consequences of grief and the proceeding impact that can have on life.’
