'I really enjoyed Space Hopper. It's such an unusual, intriguing novel. It's the first in ages that actually *interested* me' Marian Keyes

'A nostalgic, time-travelling romp' The Independent

This is a story about taking a leap of faith And believing the unbelievable

They say those we love never truly leave us, and I've found that to be true. But not in the way you might expect. In fact, none of this is what you'd expect. I've been visiting my mother who died when I was eight. And I'm talking about flesh and blood, tea-and-biscuits-on-the-table visiting here.

Right now, you probably think I'm going mad. Let me explain...

Although Faye is happy with her life, the loss of her mother as a child weighs on her mind even more now that she is a mother herself. So she is amazed when, in an extraordinary turn of events, she finds herself back in her childhood home in the 1970s. Faced with the chance to finally seek answers to her questions - but away from her own family - how much is she willing to give up for another moment with her mother? Space Hopper is an original and poignant story about mothers, memories and moments that shape life.


Helen Fisher spent her early life in America, but grew up mainly in Suffolk where she now lives with her two children. She studied Psychology at Westminster University and Ergonomics at UCL and worked as a senior evaluator in research at RNIB. Space Hopper is her first novel.
