Lifesaving for Beginners

Author(s): Ciara Geraghty


Kat Kavanagh is not in love. She has lots of friends, an ordinary job, and she never ever thinks about her past. This is Kat's story. None of it is true.

Product Information

'Heart-breaking and funny, poignant and life affirming. It is a story of fate and family, and shows you are never too old or young to start lifesaving.' -- on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS 'A moving, poetic tale about how life can change in the blink of an eye' -- Bella on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS 'Spectacular ... LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS is a novel that needs to be seen and needs to be read. It not only has a beautiful, simplistic cover, but it also has a beautiful inside too, with two characters who you really feel you know ... I really do recommend you pick up this book.' -- 'Made me laugh and cry and sometimes both at the same time. A very emotional read that I just could not put down.' -- on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS 'I love Ciara Geraghty's easy style of writing and how she manages to create such a beautiful warm and moving storyline.' -- on LIFESAVING FOR BEGINNERS 'A beautifully written, somewhat whimsical and very encouraging tale about grabbing hold of life's reins, breaking away from the monotony of a dull routine and following your dreams ... emotional, joyous ... I adored it.' -- Daily Mail on FINDING MR FLOOD 'Sad, funny and wise' -- Marie Claire on FINDING MR FLOOD 'I just can't get over how charming this book was. It was a delight to read' -- on FINDING MR FLOOD 'Move over Marian, it's Ciara ... impressive and highly entertaining [with] one of the most authentic female characters I've read in women's fiction for a long time ... lots of biting humour and a darker side beneath the laughs.' -- Irish Independent on SAVING GRACE 20080809 'Hilarious ... But there's death and guilt, too, in this sometimes dark, tear-jerking novel' **** -- Company on SAVING GRACE 20080809
