HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY?
Amy has only ever known life in the Clearing. She knows what’s expected of her. She knows what to do to please her elders, and how to make sure the community remains happy and calm. That is, until a new young girl joins the group. She isn’t fitting in; she doesn’t want to stay. What happens next will turn life as Amy knows it on its head.
Freya has gone to great lengths to feel like a ‘normal person’. In fact, if you saw her go about her day with her young son, you’d think she was an everyday mum. That is, until a young girl goes missing and someone from her past, someone she hasn’t seen for a very long time, arrives in town.
As secrets of the past bubble up to the surface, this small town’s dark secrets will be exposed and lives will be destroyed.
I was the biggest fan of Call Me Evie, a novel I recommend to everyone, so I was really excited to read In The Clearing and it did not disappoint.
This time the author offers us an atmospheric, twisty and unpredictable psychological thriller about a sinister and secret cult…A bit like Hotel California you can check in but you can never leave…
This is a clever book and an extremely addictive one- the characters are drawn pitch perfectly, sucking you into their world on the very first page. The power of personality is explored here within a tense and pacy storyline that you will happily devour in one sitting.
Really excellent. Highly recommended.
