Rainbow Child tells the story of young Rebekah and the people she discovers as her family settle in a new town far from their ancestral home in Ireland. Set in the 1970s, dark family secrets begin to unravel and her life takes many turns both delightful and terrifying as the story builds to a tragic and breathless climax that just keep going. This is a story of how we look at others who are 'different'. Through the eyes of Rebekah, writing equally with passion and humour, we see the truth in human nature. Rainbow Child is the brilliant debut novel from S.L. Coyne and was a finalist in the Wishing Shelf Awards of 2014.
