About the Book

Stepan, a Russian aristocrat by birth and lorry driver by trade, has long believed his only child to be dead. When he discovers that his 15-year-old daughter is alive in a Swiss hospital he is determined to take her home. She's afflicted with severe mental and physical disabilities; but for Stepan, she is a gift, and the one remaining link to his beloved wife Helene from whom he has long been separated.

Set against two backdrops - the bustle of crowded Marseilles and the peace of sun-steeped Provence -A Child Possessed is a beautiful love story, steeped in humour and sadness, and laced with a profound understanding of the human soul.
