When Michaela Anderson signs up for a charity parachute jump, she gets more than a case of vertigo.Michaela has effectively lost six and a half years of her life and has absolutely no idea what has happened during that time. To her it feels as though she only saw everyone yesterday but a lot has changed in her absence. She returns to Callum, her boyfriend and his daughter Abby who was a sweet 10 year old when Michaela last saw however, she is now 16 and has a definite attitude problem. Feeling that she is doing the right thing by returning to Callum, Michaela tries to settle back into life but there are so many questions that need answering plus she can't ignore the huge connection she feels to Matt, who was the instructor on the day she jumped.
Suffering last minute panic, Michaela's three colleagues go first. But just as she takes her leap of faith, an almighty gale blows up from nowhere.
When she returns to the ground, she finds the airfield deserted, her car gone and the seasons mysteriously changed. Posters nearby proclaim Michaela to have been missing for the last six and a half years...
Everything about her life is completely different.
I got a bit annoyed half way through as Michaela just seemed to be getting on with her life whereas I know if it was me then I would not settle until I knew what had happened. But it all comes right in the end, Michaela starts asking questions and searching for the truth.
This is the first book I have read by Melanie Rose but I would highly recommend her books. As I said before Down to Earth is a very entertaining book, the plot keeps you turning the pages and I was absorbed right to the very end.
