When Jackie travels to the South Downs in search of her childhood home, she uncovers a sinister secret lurking in the family closet. Her estranged brother, Chris, is her last remaining relative, but he has been transformed into something unrecognisable by the ghosts of the past. In her journey to discover the truth, Jackie enters a strange world of free-loving heathens, environmental warriors and sadistic priests, where dragons dwell beneath the streets of northern towns and demons prowl on the edge of Avebury’s stone circle. A gothic tale of love, revenge and atonement, Of Bodies Changed is an odyssey through the ancient myths that echo the human experience.

    So Wed 18th October, 2017 was my mum's 52nd birthday and I finished 'Of Bodies Changed' by my beloved Cliff who sent me his debut novel as a present. Just like #Calliope, Chris and Jackie's mother who saved them from their abusive priest father leading them to a safer place (to #Whitby from the #SouthDowns) following #Venus, the morning/evening star, my mother Luisa took my sister Francisca and I back to #Santiago (from #Purranque in southern Chile) to rescue us from a life of misery. This book is full of #myths and #metaphors related to #love which I know very well for I spent my childhood and adolescence reading Greek legends as a refuge to escape bullying at school. Each of the 17 chapters has a special message to deliver. I read this book for 17 days while commuting back home from work and it turned out being an otherworldly experience since there were some things I spoke in class with my students and later they were mysteriously mentioned in every chapter I started to read.... More > Coincidence? Law of Attraction? Who knows. After finishing the book, I decided that on my coming journey to the UK I would visit each of the places mentioned in this wonderful tale of love, revenge, and atonement as a personal closure. So I did and tears ran down my face while sitting on a bench outside Whitby Abbey. #ChristopherMavrocordatos #JakeEdlestone #Catriona #Lionheart #oasthouse #YellowRoom #morningstar #eveningstar #Greeklegends #TheMetamorphoses #atheists #agnostics #heathens #ghosts #dragons #cliffs #English #Literature #Fiction #MagicalRealism< Less
