Trailer Thursday: This Is Not Forgiveness - Celia Rees

Morning all! Hope you're all having a lovely, relaxing weekend. I finished NaNoWriMo on Friday night so I've had a really chilled out weekend, which has been brill.

I wanted to post up the awesome book trailer for Celia Rees' upcoming book 'This Is Not Forgiveness', which is due out on February 2nd 2012.

I'm so excited about this one; the trailer is great, the summary is fab and I've always been a fan of Celia Rees. What's not to love?

Summary (provided by Bloomsbury): This is not historical fiction. This is not a safe read. This is not Celia Rees as you’ve ever seen her before.

Bestselling Celia Rees is known for writing tales of high adventure set in the past. This exciting departure is a psychological drama that sees her tackling subjects of political terrorism, extremism and the effects of post traumatic stress disorder on soldiers.

Everyone says that Caro is bad news, but Jamie can’t help himself. He thinks of her night and day and can’t believe that she wants to be his girlfriend. Gorgeous, impulsive and unconventional, she is totally different to all the other girls he knows. His sister, Martha, hates her. Jamie doesn’t know why, but there’s no way he’s going to take any notice of her warnings to stay away from Caro.

As Jamie falls deeper and deeper under her spell, he realises there is much more to Caro than he first thought. She disappears for days on end, she has small scars on her wrists, she talks about revolutions and taking action, and then there are the rumours he hears about the other men in her life.

Always in the background is Rob, Jamie’s older brother, back from Afghanistan and traumatised after having his leg smashed to bits there. Jamie wants to help him, but Rob seems to be living in a world of his own and is increasingly difficult to reach. With Caro, the summer should have been perfect . . . but that isn’t how things work out in real life and Jamie is going to find out the hard way.


What do you think about the trailer? Does it make you excited about This Is Not Forgiveness?

  1. Im not a fan of the trailer but I dont think it really reflects the book that well. I don't like the half cut-off photos in a slideshow, seems too much like a high school ICT project than a book trailer lol

    I quite enjoyed the book though - I posted a review just a couple of days ago :)


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
