About the book

What if the life you're chasing is the one you left behind?

This is the story of two strangers who have loved and lost.

Her world feels small and hushed, scattered with unfulfilled dreams.

His is full of noise and endless, dizzying change.

But one day this day an extraordinary encounter will force them both to revisit everything that was, and everything that could be...

As lyrical and moving as his bestselling FIVE RIVERS MET ON A WOODED PLAIN, Norriss THE VANISHING HOURS is a novel about the pain of abandonment, the enduring power of love and the quest for meaning in a confusing world a world that can sometimes threaten to overwhelm us, but one that is rich with possibility, and always full of wonder.
