The slow fall
Kelly always stepped into her airplane with complete self-confidence,
because she knows she can fly like an ace. But this time she had a
premonition – a premonition that was nearly fulfilled when an unexpected
manoeuvre at the landing left her physically and emotionally crippled.
Psychiatrist Daniel Fraser has an impressive reputation and unorthodox
methods. Little by little he tries to uncover the origins of Kelly’s
torment. Is it the bloody coup d’état she lived through? The sudden loss
of her beloved Ray, the handsome son of Surinamese-American parents,
whose helicopter disappeared without trace in the jungle? Or is the pain
related to ghosts from the past? Together with Fraser, Kelly peels off
layer after layer of her self-protective armour and learns to cope with
her traumas. In this psychological novel Corry Stoel sketches a world of
adventure, love, desire, sadness, faithfulness, consolation and hope.
In a convincing manner she weaves the web of the life of a woman, who is
faced with agonising choices. The beautiful, profound dialogues, the
ingeniously constructed story with constant surprises and the conviction
with which the characters are brought to life, make this a book that is
irresistible and fascinating right until the last page.
