Third Novel: Bitter Orange

The Grange

I’m delighted that my third novel, Bitter Orange, will be published in early 2019, by Fig Tree / Penguin in the UK and Commonwealth, Tin House in the US, and House of Anansi in Canada.

Here’s a little taster of what it’s about:

Frances Jellico is dying and remembering the summer of 1969, when she was commissioned to survey the follies in the garden of Lyntons – a decrepit and almost derelict country house. There, living in the attic for a month or so, she meets Cara and Peter who are staying in the rooms below hers. As Frances falls under her new friends’ spell and she learns their stories, the house offers up its own secrets, until her life is changed forever.

Lyntons is inspired by The Grange (the house in the picture above), in Hampshire, a fascinating Greek Revival style house, managed by English Heritage.
