'I loved this novel' SARAH PEARSE, bestselling author of The Sanatorium



'Rippling with suspense' VICTORIA SELMAN, author of Truly, Darkly, Deeply



'Haunting at its core' SHEA ERNSHAW, author of The Wicked Deep


BEHIND EVERY STRONG WOMAN IS A GIRL WHO SURVIVED. . .


Summer, 1985: Ruby has stayed at the chateau with her family every summer since she can remember. It was her favourite place to be, but this year uninvited guests have descended, and everything is about to change. . .

As the intense August heat cloaks the chateau, the adults within start to lose sight of themselves, and darkness begins to creep around them. With the summer spiralling out of control, Ruby and her two young friends soon discover it is best not to be seen or heard until, one fateful night, an incident occurs that can never be undone. . .

Summer, 2010: One of the three young girls, now grown and newly widowed, returns to the chateau. In her fight to free herself from its grip, she uncovers what truly happened that long, dark summer.

The Ruins is a dark and suspenseful tale of control, and the women determined to fight back.
