Synopsis

Nessa: The Seeker

 

Jo: The Protector

 

Harriett: The Punisher

 

With newfound powers the time has come to take matters into their own hands…

 

After Nessa is widowed and her daughters leave for college, she’s left alone in her house near the ocean. In the quiet hours, she hears voices belonging to the dead – who will only speak to her.

 

On the cusp of fifty Harriett’s marriage and career imploded, and she hasn’t left her house in months. But her life is far from over – in fact, she’s undergone a stunning metamorphosis.

 

Jo spent thirty years at war with her body. The rage that arrived with menopause felt like the last straw – until she discovers she’s able to channel it.

 

Guided by voices only Nessa can hear, the trio discover the abandoned body of a teenage girl. The police have written off the victim. But the women have not.

 

Their own investigations lead them to more bodies and a world of wealth where the rules don’t apply – and the realisation that laws are designed to protect villains, not the vulnerable. So it’s up to these three women to avenge the innocent, and punish the guilty…

 

The time has come to embrace The Change.

Why This Book?

I’m delighted to have Kirsten Miller as my guest on Season Six of The Merry Menopause Bookclub Podcast, especially after these reviews …

“A roar of rage, a pacy page-turner, I loved it with all my broken heart. Read it. You’ll love it” – Marian Keyes 

“Part crime thriller, part extended howl of pure rage, The Change takes a scalpel to the cancer of misogyny that infects every cell of western culture, with biting wit and a burning, righteous anger that never lets up. Powerful and original” – Tammy Cohen
