The Home, Paperback / softback Book

The Home Paperback / softback

Description

One more little secretOne more little lie... When the body of a pregnant fifteen-year-old is discovered in a churchyard on Christmas morning, the community is shocked, but unsurprised.

For she lived in The Home, the residence of three young girls, whose violent and disturbing pasts have seen them cloistered away... As a police investigation gets underway, the lives of Hope, Lara and Annie are examined, and the staff who work at the home are interviewed, leading to shocking and distressing revelations ... and clear evidence that someone is seeking revenge. A gritty, dark and harrowing psychological thriller, The Home is also a heartbreaking drama and a piercing look at the underbelly of society, where children learn what they live... if they are allowed to live at all... 'Passions flare and curdle, and the reader's sympathies are kept on a knife-edge as Stovell skilfully juggles two unreliable narrators.

It's a remarkable debut in the crowded psychological thriller field, written with great sureness of touch and tone - it already feels like a summer bestseller' Sunday Times
