About the book
“I once read that the end of a relationship is like being involved in a road traffic accident. Which is quite fitting really, given what happened.” Lizzie has begun to achieve all the things she thought she had ever wanted… but realises instead that she is far from happy. Then she steps out into the path of an oncoming car, and her life begins to unravel, setting off a life-changing chain of events. Lizzie leaves her boyfriend and her home and moves to London to pursue her career. There, she attempts to overcome the legacy of her past and find her true direction in life. Little does she realise that her life is about to take another shocking twist… and that the consequences will be enormous.
What people are saying
“I really enjoyed Swimming Upstream. There is a nice rhythm and pace…credible dialogue, compelling protagonist, recognisable settings and good supporting cast.”– Eloise Millar, journalist and award-winning novelist.
The story has the right balance of drama and tension…people can identify with the break down of a relationship and in moving away from something that feels like all you have ever known. I really enjoyed this story. The writing flowed beautifully with some very vivid descriptions and a strong sense of place and all in all it felt very ‘real.’– Nicola F, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer.
