SUN CHILD is an exceptional book about a child's world. Emily has not yet reached the age of judgement. For her, normality consists of contentment and magic and there is no possibility of change in the seeming happiness of her parents. She loves them both dearly and her image of them is together - indivisible, laughing, dancing, making every day scintillate with life. When change does come, Emily is a helpless spectator, confused by the puzzle of ill-fitting events. With both poignant humour and ruthless honesty, Angela Huth has captured the inconsistencies of adult behaviour, as seen through the eyes of a child who watches and suffers from them. The situation - an all too familiar one - is treated with both poignant humour and ruthless honesty.
