Sharon Guskin

Noah is four and wants to go home. The only trouble is he's already there. Janie's son is her world, and it breaks her heart that he has nightmares. That he's terrified of water. That he sometimes pushes her away and screams that he wants his real mother. That it's getting worse and worse and no one seems to be able to help. In desperation, she turns to someone who might have an answer - but it may not be one she's ready to hear. It may also mean losing the one thing she loves more than anything. Noah.

A spooky one this. Do we have past lives? That is, other lives? If so, can those experiences sometimes bleed into our present and affect our behaviour? This is the intriguing theory – actually supported by some psychiatrists – that underpins Sharon Guskin’s haunting story. Noah is four and displays increasingly strange behaviour that baffles and frightens his mother, Janie. But uncovering the source of it may mean losing her son. A strange, utterly absorbing story.
