Friendship doesn't die, it waits...When Helena returns to her childhood home in Orkney, she is forced to face memories that she has spent half a lifetime running from. Her best friend, the charismatic Anastasia, disappeared after a swimming incident. But what really happened that night by the wrecks? A haunting and lyrical novel, 'Dark Water' is a psychologically intense portrait of adolescent yearning and obsession. "I couldn't help but be fascinated by this book. It uses the Orkney setting beautifully. Suspense, sex and selkie girls: irresistible!" Amy Liptrot, author of 'The Outrun' "Like a selkie through the cold North Sea, the story of Helena's past ploughs inexorably towards its dark conclusion, every line haunted by the ghost of her enigmatic former best friend, Anastasia. With the island of Orkney as the most dynamic of backdrops, author Sara Bailey lures you into a story of intense teenage friendship, first love, and family ties, keeping you spellbound until the very last word." - S.E. Lynes, author of 'Valentina'

“Beautifully atmospheric”

This debut novel is beautifully atmospheric with the island of Orkney being as much of a character in Dark Water as the characters themselves!

Helena is back in the Orkney Islands but isn’t too impressed with the... More
