Close My Eyes

Sophie McKenzie

It’s been eight years since Geniver Loxley lost her daughter, Beth. Since that day, Gen has been floundering. While her husband Art builds his business reputation and their fortune, she can’t let go of Beth. And then one day, everything changes. A strange woman shows up on Gen’s doorstep, saying the very thing she longs to hear: that Beth is alive. That she is out there somewhere, waiting for Gen to find her …It’s insane. Unthinkable. But why would someone make up such a story? Ignoring the warnings of her husband and friends, Gen begins to hope – hope that quickly turns into fear and paranoia. With questions swirling around her head, Gen is determined to uncover the truth. But who can she trust? Why is Art so reluctant to get involved? To save his wife from further hurt? Or something much more sinister? Is Beth even really out there? And, if so, who is responsible for taking her? What is the truth about Beth Loxley?

“Geniver Loxley is approaching 40 and what may be her last attempt at IVF. Eight years earlier she lost her baby girl, Beth, during a Caesarian operation. The child was born dead and physically malformed. She was taken away and Geniver never even saw her baby.

“Now a stranger calls to tell her that the child was born alive, perfect, and was spirited away by the surgeon. If true, then Geniver’s husband must be part of a grotesque conspiracy. And where is Beth now? Dark and disturbing.”
