Set during and just after the First World War, The Lie is an enthralling, heart-wrenching novel of love, memory and devastating loss by one of the UK's most acclaimed storytellers.
Cornwall, 1920, early spring.
A young man stands on a headland, looking out to sea. He is back from the war, homeless and without family.
Behind him lie the mud, barbed-wire entanglements and terror of the trenches. Behind him is also the most intense relationship of his life.
Daniel has survived, but the horror and passion of the past seem more real than the quiet fields around him.
He is about to step into the unknown. But will he ever be able to escape the terrible, unforeseen consequences of a lie?;
THE LIE: a heart-wrenching novel of love, memory and devastating loss by one of the UK's most acclaimed storytellers.
'Helen Dunmore has the true gift for human observation.'The Times
'Her spellbinding, lyrical prose is close to poetry. She writes like an angel. . . .Dunmore is one of our finest writers.' Daily Mail
'The beauty of her crystalline prose is that, like her poetry, it celebrates the value of the ordinary while suggesting what lies beyond it.' Daily Telegraph
'Her real skill lies in suggesting that human relations have in themselves the quality of a thriller: there is something unsolved or at least unresolved in all our pasts: we are all deceivers with something to hide.' Independent
'To be in the hands of such an accomplished writer is a great pleasure' Spectator
