An accident. A discovery. The curiosity of a passionate young artist.
In James Stoodah’s mystery-fiction novel Unwinding Time, Kayleigh Halsey, crippled by anxiety, moves to the Lake District to escape the trauma of her past. An innocent question sees her investigating a mystery and exposing a secret more than a hundred years old.
The deeper she delves, the darker the secret becomes.
Can Kayleigh’s innocence and passion bring the mystery to life? Or will she realise that you can’t run away from a memory?
Unwinding Time is set in the North Lakes and takes on board various issues spanning many generations: anxiety, sexuality, dealing with mortality and the prospect of change. Underneath it is all is a fascinating mystery delving into the mindset of a painter and how they see the world around them.
