About The Book

Dulcie Braybrooke is breaking through as a celebrated ceramicist.
Elizabeth is a lonely City head-hunter.
Annie is a teacher who’s lost her verve.
Liza is a lap dancer with a strong will and a tough life.
When a mysterious bequest throws each of the four into chaos, they seek support in the guise of hypnotherapist, Dr Kath O’Hannon. Through a process of self-discovery, their new-found knowledge weighs heavily, as they unpick four decades of life choices. They could accept the windfall, yet if they do, something entirely unexpected lies around the corner…
‘Pivotal’ is a relationship mystery, which portrays the impact of a shared life-changing dilemma on four seemingly unconnected lives.
It follows a cast of strong women in their forties whose lives are disrupted by an extraordinary event, and explores the common experiences and dilemmas of ordinary women, who might be questioning the paths they have chosen. A book with many twists and turns, it is a mystery within a mystery.
A story with relatable characters that prompts the reader to consider the decisions we make in life, the paths we take, and what could happen with even just the
slightest change of direction.

My Thoughts

Be prepared for a deep and original read, told between different voices, Pivotal will be remembered for a long time.
First you should know that this is a story told between 4 different characters, each one with their own voice and personality that you’ll be able to define on each chapter. They all will have to accept an inheritance with quite strange clause on them, not easy to accept or to fulfil for all of them and this is how everything will start.
Neither 4 of them seem to know each other or have any idea of their whereabouts, but they will decide to use hypnotherapy to help them in their next steps. And of course to cope with the situation they are living, not easy to cope without help or without someone that really cares for you on your side.
I was really eager to read a book about hypnotherapy, I’ve seen so many movies were the poor one who is been hypnotised is being abused in all the possibilities of the word that I didn’t really know what could hypnosis really do to help someone.
This had been a different and spectacular read, the author has done an amazing job creating four different characters totally different between them but with some difficult circumstances to cope that will make this book stand out from the other books
Pivotal is a book that it will be popping in your mind after you’ve finished, and which will make you think and talk about it, ready to discover it?
