Product Description

On 22 February 2011, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocks Christchurch, New Zealand and Sian Bennett’s world is reduced to dust.

Buried beneath the rubble, it takes hours to dig her out and months for her to regain consciousness. When she finally does, it is to the news that she has missed the funerals of both her husband and baby son.

Two years later, the traumatic brain injury sustained during the quake is slowly robbing her of her short-term memories. Terrified, she retreats to her family’s lakeside cottage in Rotorua, spending her days filling notebook after notebook with all the moments she holds so dear.

When enigmatic American soldier Luke Lancaster moves into the derelict cottage beyond the trees, he respects his reclusive neighbour’s silent plea for privacy. But while Sian fights to remember, Luke would rather forget.

In the Shadow of Satellites is Amanda Dick’s latest searing novel about the power of love and the strength of the human spirit.

Buy now and discover how two strangers can share a connection that has both the power to heal and the power to destroy.

Well, yet again, Amanda has left me struggling to find the words to talk about this book. Fantastic doesn't really seem to do it justice! I have read all of Amanda's books, to date, and each time I say the one I've read is my favourite - this is my favourite!!

I love how Amanda takes you an emotional journey with each of her books, and In The Shadow of Satellites is no different. I feel like I'm a part of the story, living each of the moments with the characters. And what fabulous characters they are - I feel like I know everything about Sian and Luke, I feel like I've been on their journey with them!

Sian and Luke are two very similar, but also very different people, each coming to terms with their own horrendous heartbreak. Although neighbours, they both live in isolation trying to come to terms with their reasons for wanting to be alone. They see each other from a distance, a relationship they are both comfortable with. However, with the help, support and guidance of some fantastic friends, they may finally both get their second chance at life.

In The Shadow of Satellites is a truly beautiful read and will leave you wanting more from this amazing author.

Amanda Dick has done it again! An absolutely beautiful, yet heartbreaking story of human spirit. Amanda has this incredible ability to express the huge range of human emotions so vividly it feels real....tangible. Like it's happening to you.

Sian and Luke have lost so much and have experienced more tragedy in their young lives than most people experience in a lifetime. From the first page, I was drawn into the tale of loss and heartbreak (I don't know how people cope with such grief) and the strength it takes to move on. Through Sian, Luke, Anna and Chris we see the huge importance of love, friendship, support, trust and ultimately, letting go! It's an incredible experience. I cried, laughed and cried again. My heart was so full at times and I wanted to reach out and give Sian and Luke a massive hug!

By the end of this book you will want to reach out to someone you love and show them just how much! Amazing! Beautiful!

I am lucky enough to have read this latest story of Amanda's. My first thought after finishing Amanda's latest story was "wow". A story of love and loss, I cannot recommend this story highly enough. Amanda uses real life happenings (Christchurch's February 2011 earthquake and the Afghanistan conflict) to base her story of Sian and Luke, who are both struggling to come to terms with their pasts. The story is based in the central North Island region of New Zealand which I am familiar with. As a fellow New Zealander, like Amanda, I can totally relate to the scenes thst Amanda has created in this amazing story. Amanda is one of the few authors who can create visual images in my imagination that remain with me from beginning to end. A definite must read.
