“Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. Before starting the reading or downloading, here is the summary of the book that you can read. Newly single mom Beth has one constant, gnawing worry: that her dreamy eight-year-old daughter, Carmel, who has a tendency to wander off, will one day go missing.And then one day, it happens: On a Saturday morning thick with fog, Beth takes Carmel to a local outdoor festival, they get separated in the crowd, and Carmel is gone.Shattered, Beth sets herself on the grim and lonely mission to find her daughter, keeping on relentlessly even as the authorities tell her that Carmel may be gone for good.Carmel, meanwhile, is on a strange and harrowing journey of her own—to a totally unexpected place that requires her to live by her wits, while trying desperately to keep in her head, at all times, a vision of her mother …Alternating between Beth’s story and Carmel’s, and written in gripping prose that won’t let go, The Girl in the Red Coat—like Emma Donoghue’s Room and M. L. Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans—is an utterly immersive story that’s impossible to put down . . . and impossible to forget.“Kate Hamer’s gripping debut novel immediately recalls the explosion of similarly titled books and movies, from Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, to The Girl on the Train to Gone Girl … “—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times“Keeps the reader turning pages at a frantic clip… What’s most powerful here is not whodunnit, or even why, but how this mother and daughter bear their separation, and the stories they tell themselves to help endure it.” —Celeste Ng (Everything I Never Told You)
Brief Summary Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer
The absolutely mesmerizing voices of the two main characters, Carmel and her mother Beth. The chapters alternate — each are told in the first person by the mother and the daughter. Hamer embodies these characters so completely you might wonder if she’s schizophrenic. She IS eight year old Carmel lost in the fog. Tugging on her crimson toggle coat. Looking up at adult faces the way an 8 year old would. Seeing eyes and mouths and leaves and limbs and loss the way an 8 year old would. Kate Hamer constructs this captivating little girl so deftly and beautifully it’s impossible to imagine the child doesn’t actually exist in the world. It’s impossible to imagine there is a grown woman behind her — Her choreographer, her Frankenstein, her God: holding her upright, wielding her small arms and spouting her meticulous 8 year old voice with its perfectly whittled down vocabulary and brutally candid prepubescent observations. And then the child is gone and Beth the mother reappears. Her long limbs whipping about restlessly, her exhausted adult eyes combing every inch of land — sucking up anything and everything that could possibly lead her back to her child. Hamer gives herself completely to each character. She is an incredibly visceral writer. She writes like a fox shadowing its prey. She knows when to move. When to leap. When to bite. And when she does, watch out because she bites to the bone.
