This novella, which was shortlisted in the Gatehouse Press New Fictions Prize 2015/16, tells of a troubled childhood, the loss of a baby, and the end of a marriage, seen through a distorting lens, twisted and unclear.

“Claire relives her past but her memories are fragmented, shattered like the remains of a toy kaleidoscope. A troubled childhood, the loss of her baby, and the end of her marriage are seen through a distorting lens, twisted and unclear. What really happened? And can Claire find a way through the mirror maze of memories to discover the truth? Kaleidoscope is a compelling and disturbing tale of a disintegrating life.”

Claire's story is lit by sadness but also love, insight and some intrigue, and tackling the illusion (and pressures of fighting against) the idea of perfect motherhood.
