The Children Act

Brand: Vintage Publishing   |   Status: Hết hàng

"The book did not disappoint. The book takes us into the mind of Fiona, ("my lady") the judge in the Family Court, and describes in detail the court procedure in a particularly difficult case. The judge's decision, based on the evidence produced and her own interview with the child, made compelling reading.
The subsequent results of her decision were totally unexpected
Beautifully written, this was a great read." - Amazon Reviewer

A brilliant, emotionally wrenching new novel from the author of Atonement and Amsterdam.

Fiona Maye, a leading High Court judge, renowned for her fierce intelligence and sensitivity is called on to try an urgent case. For religious reasons, a seventeen-year-old boy is refusing the medical treatment that could save his life. Time is running out.

She visits the boy in hospital – an encounter which stirs long-buried feelings in her and powerful new emotions in the boy. But it is Fiona who must ultimately decide whether he lives or dies and her judgement will have momentous consequences for them both.
