Andrew Chapman’s new novel is out now.
Set in a remote corner of north west Scotland it is the story of one man’s search for a new life after his wife has disappeared. In the context of a compelling story it explores the nature of being a solitary yet still living within a community.
Andrew Chapman brings to this novel the characteristics of his writing which infused his previous books Beyond the Silence (2010) and Ikon (2012), a narrative drive which holds the reader’s attention throughout and a humanity which leaves one with much to ponder.
Here is a beguiling story set against the backdrop of a beautiful and unique location.
Some readers comments on The Leaving
“Really enjoyed this book, couldn’t put it down. Read the last few chapters into the early hours of the night… the author reveals a depth of understanding of the pressures of an ordinary parish priest. A beautiful evocation of a remote Scottish community which left me searching trainline for the first available ticket.”
“I couldn’t put this book down …. the plot is full of intrigue, multi–layered and pacey. The characters are beautifully created and all held my interest. Andrew Chapman has a great way of describing situations and places …. Such interesting subject matters, and all very much woven around our human nature and relationships. A thoroughly enjoyable read.”
“A gripping novel with interesting characters, a mystery… addressing .. fundamental questions.”
