Description

'Vivid and compelling' Rosamund Lupton, bestselling author of Three Hours

It was like something out of a fairytale...
The grieving widower.
The motherless daughters.
A beautiful house in the woods.


Deep in a remote Norwegian forest, Lexi has found a new home with architect Tom and his two young daughters. With snow underfoot and the sound of the nearby fjord in her ears, it's as if Lexi has stepped into a fairy tale


But this family has a history - and this place has a past. Something was destroyed to build their beautiful new house. And those ancient, whispering woods have a long memory.


Lexi begins to hear things, see things that don't make sense. She used to think this place heavenly, but in the dark, dark woods, a menacing presence lurks.


With darkness creeping in from the outside, Lexi knows she needs to protect the children in her care.


But protect them from what?
