Gillian Leaving, by Lucy Nankivell

What would you do if you woke up in the night to hear a voice saying ‘Get out now’?

Gillian’s life has never started. She lives in a prison of fear and habit, knowing almost nothing of the outside world and doing only what she is told; even the name she uses isn’t her own.

One day she can stand it no longer. She leaves her dull job, her narrow routine and the cold, resentful guardian she has lived with as long as she can remember. Even though she’s never travelled and can barely drive, she sets off alone in a rickety old car to wander through France and see what happens.

Facing her terrors and tasting freedom for the first time, she starts to understand who she really is. She discovers new ways of seeing the world, abilities she never dreamed of and people who will change her life forever.

But the cage of the past is still waiting, and stepping back inside is all too easy.
