I’ve been meaning to read Space Hopper by Helen Fisher since it was released in hardback, so I’m delighted that it’s my latest review for for My Weekly.
Published in paperback by Simon and Schuster on 17th March 2021, Space Hopper is available for purchase in all formats through the links here.
If you could go back in time to find answers to the past, would you?
For Faye, the answer is yes. There is nothing she wouldn’t do to find out what really happened when she lost her mother as a child. She is happy with her life – she has a loving husband, two young daughters and supportive friends, even a job that she enjoys. But questions about the past keep haunting her, until one day she finally gets the chance she’s been waiting for.
But how far is she willing to go to find answers?
Space Hopper is an original and poignant story about mothers, memories and moments that shape life.
My Review of Space Hopper
My full review of Space Hopper can be found on the My Weekly website here.
However, here I can say that Space Hopper completely took me by surprise. I’d anticipated a romcom style read and instead found a though-provoking, intriguing exploration of what makes us who we are and that contemplates the relationships we make. I found it fascinating.
