Nick Propert, a clergyman in a Midlands town, suffers a devastating shock when his wife disappears. Although their relationship has been strained there appears to be no explanation for her leaving and Nick is left to reconstruct his life in her absence. This leads him to a remote peninsula on the west coast of Scotland, a place where he can seek to understand what has happened to his life and whether a future on his own might be possible. The answers are surprising to him.
Andrew Chapman, author of two previous novels, Beyond the Silence (2010) and Ikon (2012) lives in Worcestshire. He brings to The Leaving a style that characterised his previous books; compelling narrative flow and a deep insight into the people whose stories are found within.
The Leaving was published in September 2015 and can be ordered from any good bookshop or via this website.
