The Attic Child by Lola Jaye (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

A hauntingly powerful and emotionally charged novel about family secrets, love and loss, identity and belonging.

Two children trapped in the same attic, almost a century apart, bound by a shared secret.

Early 1900s London: Taken from his homeland, twelve-year-old Celestine spends most of the time locked away in the attic of a large house by the sea. The only time Celestine isn’t bound by confines of the small space is when he is acting as an unpaid servant to English explorer Sir Richard Babbington, As the years pass, he desperately clings on to memories of his family in Africa, even as he struggles to remember his mother’s face, and sometimes his real name . . .

1974: Lowra, a young orphan girl born into wealth and privilege whose fortunes have now changed, finds herself trapped in the same attic. Searching for a ray of light in the darkness of the attic, Lowra finds under the floorboards an old-fashioned pen, a porcelain doll, a beaded necklace, and a message carved on the wall, written in an unidentifiable language. Providing comfort for her when all hope is lost, these clues will lead her to uncover the secrets of the attic.”

What else has been happening this week:

As you know this week included my birthday so we went out for lunch and dinner on the actual day which was nice. We haven’t eaten in a restaurant since before the pandemic so for our 3 year old son it was a bit of a novelty for him! This week also saw our return to a shopping centre near us which was eyeopening… I have managed to finish off a few of my books this week after a pretty slow week last week, so I feel like I have accomplished something!

Hope you have all had a good week. Here’s to next week!

    Happy birthday! As we slowly reemerge from our personal lockdowns, I imagine that the very young are surprised to be out in the world, sometimes for the very first time.

    The Attic Child sounds fascinating. I’d like to know more about this book.

      Thank you. Yes. My son is 3 so has spent a high percentage of his life in lockdown.

      It is a wonderful book, heartbreaking and eye opening. My review will be up on 17 May ☺️

      Thank you. It has. It is still quite nervewracking, but my partner is a school teacher and my son is about to start school this September so has been going to a Centre to get used to mixing with people…
