The House at the Edge of the World
When I was eighteen, my father fell off a cliff. It was a stupid way to die.
Twins Morwenna and Corwin are eighteen when their father falls to his death near their beloved family home in Devon. While the twins flee in opposite directions to try to begin new lives, their mother, enraged by years of unhappy marriage, seeks freedom from the family home that has oppressed her.
But for all of them, the connections to the house – and family – are not so easy to break. When, seventeen years after their father’s death, Corwin returns to the house again, he will force Morwenna to confront a terrifying truth from the past, one that will destroy everything they thought they knew about their childhood home.
“A story that carries you along – clever plotting and a startling outcome. An impressive first novel.”
“Wonderfully crisp and funny, and so full of vivid, surprising images that the reader almost doesn’t notice the moment that deep secrets begin to be revealed. I enjoyed this book so much.”
