Space Hopper

by Helen Fisher

The loss of my mother is like a missing tooth: an absence I can feel at all times, but one I can hide as long as I keep my mouth shut. And so I rarely talk about her.

Despite her happy life with her husband and two daughters, Faye struggles with the unexplained loss of her mother when she was a child.  A photo of herself as a little girl sitting in a Space Hopper box (remember those huge bouncy balls with handles you could sit on and bounce around?) sends her up into the attic where an extraordinary thing happens – she finds herself back in her childhood home in the 1970s having tea with her 25 year old mother.  How much is Faye willing to give up for the chance to spend more time with her mother?  Will she find the answers she’s been looking for?

Advice Faye is given about mothers: After love, the second thing that matters is just being with them. Time. Simple. Love, then time.

I know I might lose a few readers at the mention of time travel but trust me – Space Hopper really grows on you – it carries a lovely thought-provoking message about mothers and daughters and memories and moments that shape life.

Slip into this beautifully simple yet profound novel and explore love, relationships, regret and second chances while travelling through time to the 1970’s – LoveReading UK

An unusual, intriguing novel – Marian Keyes

A lovely, deeply-moving story of loss and love and memory made real – Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander
