ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR:
VOGUE • THE GUARDIAN


WINNER OF THE 2021 STELLA PRIZE


“A wondrous and disturbing novel . . . Observant, melodic, imaginative . . . . Wyld consistently entertains, juggling the pleasures of several different genres.” The New York Times

“Gripping . . . . A haunted house of a novel, as intricately built as relentlessly ominous . . . . Wyld is so controlled and subtle a storyteller that her themes remain elegantly beneath the surface. What carries you along is the vivid description and an atmosphere of rising dread.” Vogue

“An expertly layered, quietly suspenseful novel . . . . [Wyld is] a consummately sly storyteller.” Wall Street Journal

“Riveting . . . . Powerful . . . . Like any good gothic novel, there is a dark old house full of noises and things that go bump in the night.” Brooklyn Rail
 
“Like Sarah Waters and Attica Locke, Hannah Kent and Celeste Ng, Evie Wyld writes novels that are fast-paced page-turners with meticulously crafted narratives.” Chicago Review of Books

“A haunting survival tale that lingers long after the last page . . . Steeped in grief and teeming with ghosts, Wyld’s new novel explores violence against women throughout time . . . . Time and time again, Wyld artfully proves the female body knows (even if the mind won’t accept) the dangers lurking all around.” Kirkus Reviews

“Hard to stop reading.” Booklist

“A gothic novel, a family saga and a ghost story rolled into one . . . Psychologically fearless . . . . Searingly controlled . . . Wyld is a genius of contrasting voices and revealed connections.” The Guardian
 
“A multilayered masterpiece; vivid, chilling, leaping jubilantly through space and time, it’s a jaw dropping novel that confirms Wyld as one of our most gifted young writers.” —Observer (UK)
 
“Tremendous . . . a powerful and beautifully written narrative of male violence and the three women who endured it.” —William Boyd, The Telegraph
 
“Wyld is unhesitatingly brave in her writing . . . . Her prose shines, even as it devours.” Financial Times
 
“Wyld’s skilfully woven narrative will keep you turning towards a final, unexpected twist.” Evening Standard
 
“Vivid and gripping.” Irish Times
