'Unforgettable' - ROSAMUND LUPTON Virginia Wrathmell has always known she will meet her death on the marsh. One snowy New Year's Eve, at the age of eighty-six, Virginia feels the time has finally come. New Year's Eve, 1939. Virginia is ten, an orphan arriving to meet her new parents at their mysterious house, Salt Winds. Her new home sits on the edge of a vast marsh, a beautiful but dangerous place. War feels far away out here amongst the birds and shifting sands - until the day a German fighter plane crashes into the marsh. The people at Salt Winds are the only ones to see it. What happens next is something Virginia will regret for the next seventy-five years, and which will change the whole course of her life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Like Daphne du Maurier...powerfully conjures up a place, a time, and a story that are unforgettable." -- ROSAMUND LUPTON
"An atmospheric, beautifully paced novel about sacrifice, the urge to belong and revenge. It's full of well-drawn characters I loved to hate, and those that I didn't want to let go, even after I closed the last page." -- CLAIRE FULLER
"A beautifully written, atmospheric novel -- reminiscent of Jane Eyre... bewitching and haunting" -- EOWYN IVEY
"Melodic and beautiful" * Prima *
"Really special" * Good Housekeeping *

It was worth it. This story is gripping and so enjoyable. Even the... More

The first thing that will draw your attention to the book is the incredible cover design. This is down to the magic of Leo Nickolls. Just one of the best covers this year.
