Rae Simpson, Education Officer, is struggling to recover from her marriage to a control freak. Richard Banks, 9-year-old student, is floundering as he tries to please both his controlling father and his headmistress. A difficult task, as the very thing that pleases his father is the thing that most puts his school place at risk: Richard gives messages from the dead. Whilst sceptical Rae tries to work with Richard, his overzealous father and a head teacher who thinks compromise is a dirty word, her ex-husband arrives back on the scene. As control rapidly begins to fall away from them both, Rae and Richard find themselves victims of dramatic events that unite them in a way that Rae never thought possible. Soon enough, the question is not ‘Can Rae save Richard’s school place?’ but ‘Can Rae save Richard’s life?’ I Hear You Calling is a fast-moving story of love, loss, trust and control that will take you into areas you may never have visited before. A contemporary novel with a paranormal flavour, it will appeal to those with an interest in spirituality and what lies beyond our world.
