Product description

"People go traveling for two reasons: because they are searching for something, or they are running from something." Katie's world is shattered by the news that her headstrong and bohemian younger sister, Mia, has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff in Bali. The authorities say that Mia jumped--that her death was a suicide. Although they'd hardly spoken to each other since Mia suddenly left on an around-the-world trip six months earlier, Katie refuses to accept that her sister would have taken her own life. Distraught that they never made peace, Katie leaves her orderly, sheltered life in London behind and embarks on a journey to find out the truth. With only the entries in Mia's travel journal as her guide, Katie retraces the last few months of her sister's life and--page by page, country by country--begins to uncover the mystery surrounding her death. . . . Weaving together the exotic settings and suspenseful twists of Alex Garland's "The Beach "with a powerful tale of familial love in the spirit of Rosamund Lupton's "Sister, Swimming at Night "is a fast-paced, accomplished, and gripping debut novel of secrets, loss, and forgiveness.

Review quote

"A tender and intricate meditation on sisterhood and family, "Swimming at Night" is an accomplished debut. With a deft hand, Lucy Clarke weaves a deep and compelling story that is as much about what binds us together as it is about what tears us apart. Perfectly capturing the impossibly complicated love of siblings, this is a rich and moving story that lingers long after the book is closed."--Lisa Unger, author of Heartbroken and Beautiful Lies
