In a remote, crumbling house in the Fens live four sisters - Agatha, Milly, and Ellen and Esther, identical twins so closely linked as to be almost one person. They have lived there all their lives, trapped still by the fear of their dead father, who governs his daughters' lives from beyond the grave. And then there is George, another inhabitant, imprisoned in the cellar. Bit by bit macabre events come to light; events that transformed an idyllic country childhood into a world of eccentric isolation.show more

Review quote

'A superior and very English offering: mad, macabre ... deserves attention and applause' Sunday Telegraph 'A true original ... a startling work. Eerie and satisfying - a horro story told with tenderness' Sunday Times 'Has a dreamlike quality - yet this is a fairytale gone gruesomely wrong - a sinister, powerful book. Not for the faint-hearted' Literary Reviewshow more
