The Stopped Heart, Hardback


"Bloody brilliant". (Paula Hawkins, bestselling author of The Girl on the Train).

Some memories are too powerful to live only in the past.

During a ferocious storm, a red-haired stranger appears in the garden of a small farming cottage.

Eliza and her parents take him in. But very soon, it's clear he has no intention of leaving.

A century later, Mary and Graham have experienced every parent's worst nightmare.

Now, escaping the memories and the headlines, they have found an idyllic new home in rural Suffolk.

A cottage, a beautiful garden. The perfect place to forget. To move on. But life doesn't always work that way. A devastating depiction of profound loss, sexual longing, love and true evil, The Stopped Heart is the finest novel to date from this most fearless and original of writers.
