Synopsis

'Are you okay, Mummy? Did Daddy hurt you again?'

Anne Mason's childhood in Richmond emulates suburban bliss, with a wealthy father and a loving mother. But behind the polished windows, Anne's father terrorizes her mother, shattering their utopian home life with beatings and beer. Home-schooled on a diet of books and museums, knowledge becomes Anne's only saviour.

One night her dad comes home with the news that her mother has left them forever. Unable to care for his daughter, Anne is sent to live with her kindly aunt and uncle. Struggling to settle into day school, Anne enrolls in Lakeland Boarding School. She meets and falls for gentle Karen, whose friends torment Anne and her troubled roommate Simone.

Forced to confront her traumatic upbringing, Anne learns the horrors of the past and present. Will love, hope, and inner strength prevail?

'Anne' is a powerful and dramatic YA tale about life, family and coming-of-age in and outside of London.
