All Books are second hand
A stunning novel about faith, innocence and sin, the tale of an unusual rite of passage with terrible consequences by the prize-winning young author of The Land of Decoration.
It was the year when Madeline's family moved to an island her father believed God had guided him to.
It was a place where she revelled in the natural beauty of their surroundings.
It was a time of euphoria, but also of successive disasters.
It was the night Madeline turned fourteen, when she did something she thought would save her beloved mother. Something so traumatic that she cannot now recall it, but her suave new psychiatrist thinks he knows how to unlock her memory. He is treading on very dangerous ground.
