Kendra Leighton is a fantastic new home-grown YA author and her debut, Glimpse, re-imagines Alfred Noyes' famous poem 'The Highwayman' in a bang-up-to-date contemporary novel. Just like the poem Glimpse is a story of love, jealousy and bravery with a ghostly twist which will haunt you long after you've turned the last page.
The highwayman came riding
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door
Liz just wants to be normal. Her life is anything but.
Seven years ago Liz lost her mother and ten years worth of memories. When she inherits the infamous Highwayman Inn, she hopes the move will be a fresh start. Then she meets Zachary. Zachary who haunts her by night and in dreams; who makes her question everything she is and wants to be; who seems scarcely real yet makes her feel so alive.
Inspired by Alfred Noyes classic poem The Highwayman , Glimpse is a ghost story, a love story, and a story of a girl fighting for her future by confronting her terrible past.
