FALLING UPWARDS • a novel by Alisha Sufit

Synopsis: Two years after her husband abandons her for another woman, Sophie Luce is descending into depression, her drinking out of control. Her teenage son has left for university and, apart from Anya, her eccentric Polish lodger, she lives alone in her rambling house in north London, unable and unwilling to cope. The upstairs boiler breaks down and Sophie has to find someone to repair it, which leads to an unexpected chance chain of events, dramatic and macabre, that change her life for ever.
