UM OLHAR ESPECIAL SOBRE A INFÂNCIA, A VELHICE E OS ESENCONTROS QUE TORNAM NOSSAS VIDAS ÚNICAS.
Milo Moon tem nove anos e sofre de retinite pigmentosa. Ele está perdendo a visão e logo ficará cego. Mas, por enquanto, vê o mundo por um buraco de agulha e percebe coisas que as outras pessoas não notam.
Mas quando a adorada avó de Milo começa a sofrer de demência e vai para uma casa de repouso, ele percebe que há algo de muito errado naquele lugar. Os adultos não lhe dão atenção e, por isso, com a ajuda do cozinheiro Tripi e de Hamlet, seu porquinho de estimação, Milo decide mostrar o que realmente acontece na casa de repouso e quem é a sinistra enfermeira Thornhill.
Perspicaz, inteligente e surpreendente, O olhar de Milo é um romance cheio de grandes ideias, verdades simples e uma mensagem emocionante, capaz de tocar todas as pessoas. Milo vê o mundo de uma forma muito especial e será impossível não se apaixonar por ele, saborear cada momento e depois compartilhar sua história.
Virginia Macgregor foi criada na Alemanha, na França e na Inglaterra por uma mãe que não se cansava de contar histórias. A partir do momento em que conseguiu segurar uma caneta na mão, Virginia começou a escrever suas próprias histórias, geralmente tarde da noite â ou na parte de trás dos livros, na escola. Virginia deve seu nome a duas grandes mulheres: Virginia Wade e Virginia Woolf, pois sua mãe tinha a esperança de que ela se tornasse escritora e uma estrela do tênis. Virginia passou a infância rabiscando, adorando os dias chuvosos e rezando para que um raio acertasse seu professor de tênis. Depois de estudar em Oxford, começou a escrever regularmente enquanto trabalhava como professora de inglês e inspetora em um internato. Virginia mora em Berkshire (Inglaterra) com seu marido, Hugh, e sua filha. O olhar de Milo é seu primeiro romance.

Read information about the authorI was brought up in Germany, France and England by a mother who never stopped telling stories. From the moment I was old enough to hold a pen, I set about writing my own, often late into the night – or behind my Maths textbook at school. My maiden name is Virginia Woods: I was named after two great women, Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf, in the hope I would be a writer and a tennis star. My early years were those of a scribbling, rain-loving child who prayed for lightning to strike my tennis coach.
After studying at Oxford, I started writing regularly whilst working as an English Teacher and Housemistress. I now write full time for both adults and young adults. My fiction tackles contemporary issues, often through the lens of family life.
My debut novel, 'What Milo Saw,' came out in 2014: it reflects the humour and tragedy of contemporary Britain through four very different voices: 9 year old Milo, 92 year old Lou (Milo’s Gran), 27 year old Sandy (Milo’s mum) and 24 year old Tripi (a Syrian refugee). It explores a range of issues from the nursing home crisis in the UK, coping as a single mum, being a refugee to living with a disability - Milo has a degenerative eye condition called Retinitis Pigementosa which means he has no periphery vision - but, paradoxically, he picks up on more of what's going on than those around him, especially in his Gran's nursing home.
My second novel, 'The Return of Norah Wells' came out in 2016: it tells the story of a mother who walked out on her young family and came back six years later expecting to pick up where she left off . The novel takes place over a May bank holiday and, like Milo, is told through several points of view: Willa (7), Ella (14), Norah (The Mother Who Left), Fay (The Mother Who Stayed) and Adam - the dad. It's a real family drama and I hope that it will lead to some interesting discussions amongst my readers about what it means to be a mum today.
My third novel, 'Born To Be Yours', tells the story of seven year old Jonah, a Kenyan boy abandoned at Heathrow airport. He is taken in by social services and matched with Rosie and Sam Keep, a British couple who long to have child to call their own. As the three of them are brought together they are thrown into a drama which will challenge their notions of what it means to be a family and Rosie and Sam have to confront the hardest question of all: how far are they prepared to go for someone who isn't their own child?
I'm working on my fourth novel for adults, 'Forgetting You', about a man found in Regent's Park with no memory of who he is or where is from. This will be out in 2018.
In 2017 I published my first Young Adult novel, 'Wishbones'. It's been a dream of mine to write for both adults and young adults. The story is also contemporary: it's about fourteen year old Feather Tucker who lives with her morbidly obese mother who has been given six months to live. Feather sees it as her duty to save her mother's life but as she begins to dig into her parents' past to find out why her mother got so sick, Feather's life and that of the people in the small village where she and her family live, change forever.
I live currently live in Concord, New Hampshire, with my husband, Hugh, my two little girls, Tennessee Skye and Somerset Wilder and a wonderful white dogcat (he comes on walks with us), Seb. I love to write in coffee shops and I walk every day, which is as much part of my creative process as putting words on the page. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that readers are enjoying my stories so please get in touch and share your experience of reading my novels.
