The Wonder House, Paperback / softback Book

The Wonder House Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Hardy's evident intimacy with and affection for the troubled landscape and people of her novel lend The Wonder House an air of distinction' - The TimesThree women live on The Wonder House, a boat moored on Nagin Lake, and carved from the great cedars that watch over the Kashmir Valley.

Suriya is mute, and carries a terrible secret. Her daughter, Lila, wants to escape the past, and live a different kind of life.

But together, they tend to Gracie, a defiant Yorkshirewoman living out her widowhood by the lake.

A military coup over the border brings violence crashing back into the Valley.

When an English journalist arrives to report on the conflict, Gracie invites him to stay on The Wonder House.

But, Hal is a man adrift, and his love for one of the women threatens more than just the fragile peace on the houseboat.
