Synopsis

WINNER OF THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION

'Tense, dark and intensely gripping . . . written so seductively that passages sing out from the page ' Sunday Times

Cathy and her brother, Rob, don't know why they have been abandoned by their parents. Alone in their grandfather's decaying country house, they roam the wild grounds freely with minds attuned to the rural wilderness. Lost in their own private world, they seek and find new lines to cross.

But as the First World War draws closer, crimes both big and small threaten the delicate refuge they have built. Cathy will do anything to protect their dark Eden from anyone, or anything, that threatens to destroy it.

'An electrifying and original talent, a writer whose style is characterized by a lyrical, dreamy intensity' Guardian

'Stops you in your tracks with the beauty of its writing' Observer

'Has a strong and sensuous magic' The Times

'Her spellbinding, lyrical prose is close to poetry' Daily Mail

About the Publisher

Penguin Books

Penguin Books

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
