SUMMERLAND is a most unusual book. It is written by spirit, those whom we may call Guardian Angels, and has been written specifically as a NOVEL. This is the very first time this has been done. It has been written as a Novel for a special purpose. So that this simple story of life, the change (Death) and our eternal existence may be told. Its aim is to express the fact that there is more to us than some of us would like to acknowledge.
Ruth McQuillan-Wilson, a Summerland survivor, tells her story through a vivid and evocative examination of the events. This fresh look at the disaster which befell the Isle of Man's most modern holiday complex in 1973 not only sheds new light, but also uncovers many unanswered questions. Some of these questions, particularly about the suitability of untested modern building materials, have a surprising resonance with more recent events.
