Quick take

In this poignant tale, solitude and grief intertwine as Anna's secluded life is disrupted by the arrival of Siôn, leading to a revelation that changes everything.

Synopsis
Why we love it

Northey's writing is beautifully precise, painting a vivid picture of the complexities of life—friendships, family ties, relationships, and the inevitable losses we all face. Despite the turmoil, there's a warmth that runs through the story, along with a hint of mystery that's too tantalising to ignore. You won't be able to put it down.

Grief, solitude, and the inner call to be freed from her past are the threads that beautifully and tightly intertwine in this novel.

Grief, solitude, and the inner call to be freed from her past are the threads that beautifully and tightly intertwine in this novel.

Anna has lived alone for decades. She is cocooned by, and marooned in, an isolated cottage called Nant yr Aur in the Welsh mountains. The arrival of Siôn, a young man who seems strangely at home in the house, leads to an unpicking of Anna’s past.

As Anna’s relationship with Siôn develops, her perspective on the solidity of her past shifts. Uncertainty, distortion, illusion and subtle betrayal are gradually exposed. Ultimately, a quietly devastating revelation changes the lives of both Siôn and Anna.
