The Unfinished Business of Eadie Brown by Freya North

From £9.99

‘This book is incredibly real, raw and true to life. Freya North has woven in aspects of our earlier years that we’ve probably long forgotten. She’s retold our stories reminding us of the trauma of a school-yard bully but also the bigger trauma of an IRA bombing. Tightly bound into these real events, in real places, is Eadie’s story. ‘ – Tea Leaves and Reads

About the Book…

When your present meets your past, what do you take with you – and what do you leave behind?

Eadie Browne is a quirky kid living in a small town where nothing much happens. Bullied at school, she muddles her way through the teenage years with best friends Celeste and Josh until University takes them their separate ways.

Arriving in Manchester as a student in the late 1980s, Eadie experiences a novel freedom and it’s intoxicating. As the city embraces the dizzying euphoria of Rave counterculture, Eadie is swept along, ignoring danger and reality. Until, one night, her past comes hurtling at her with consequences she could never have imagined.

Now, as the new millennium approaches, Eadie is thirty with a marriage in tatters, travelling back to the town of her birth for a funeral she can’t quite comprehend. As she journeys from the North to the South, from the present to the past, Eadie contemplates all that was then and all that is now – and the loose ends that must be tied before her future can unfold.
