Writing the Town Read


Writing the Town Read by Katharine E. Smith

On July 7th 2005, London is high on the success of winning the 2012 Olympics bid. The celebrations come to an abrupt end when terrorists attack the city’s transport network, striking Underground trains and a bus during the morning rush hour.
At the other side of the country, in comparatively peaceful, beautiful Cornwall, aspiring journalist Jamie Calder finds her own life directly affected by the bombs. Her partner Dave vanishes in London at the same time the attacks take place.
The initial impact of that terrible day is followed by a slow but sure falling apart of the life Jamie believed was settled and secure. As well as Dave’s mysterious disappearance, she finds she has to face a betrayal by her best friend, and the prospect of losing her job.
Meanwhile, a gang of teenagers is wreaking havoc in the town that Jamie loves, culminating in a brutal attack on an elderly lady and adding to Jamie’s inner turmoil.
The following months hold a number of challenges for Jamie, demonstrating that life does not always run to plan and that things are not always as they may first seem.
Only time will tell whether this is necessarily a bad thing.
