'Just downright brilliant... a transcendent, transporting experience' - Observer
A motherless girl grows up in isolated luxury, hidden from the world by her wealthy father. She believes their life together is normal - but as time passes, she has a growing sense that something between them is very wrong.Â She cannot escape, so she seeks solace in her books.
Her favourite tales are those that conjure ancient worlds - of angry gods and heroic mortals, one of whom will some day come to her rescue. Soon, she will forget where the page ends and her mind begins.Â
'A full-throttle blast of storytelling mastery' - Max Porter
