From acclaimed author William Trevor, Felicia's Journey is a tightly woven psychological thriller

'A book so brilliant that it compels you to stay up all night galloping through to the end' Daily Mail

You're beautiful
, Johnny told her.

So, full of hope, seventeen-year-old Felicia crosses the Irish Sea to England to find her lover and tell him she is pregnant. Desperately searching for Johnny in the bleak post-industrial Midlands, she is instead found by Mr Hilditch, a strange and lonely man, a collector and befriender of homeless young girls . . .

'Immensely readable. The plot twist is both sinister and affecting, and so skilfully done that you remember why authors had plot twists in the first place' Guardian

Readers of The Story of Lucy Gault and Love and Summer will adore Felicia's Journey. It will also be cherished by readers of Colm Toibin and William Boyd.

William Trevor was born in Mitchelstown, County Cork. He has written eighteen novels and novellas, and hundreds of short stories, for which he has won a number of prizes including the Hawthornden Prize, the Yorkshire Post Book of the Year Award, the Whitbread Book of the Year Award and the David Cohen Literature Prize in recognition of a lifetime's literary achievement. In 2002 he was knighted for his services to literature.

A book so brilliant that it compels you to stay up all night galloping through to the end - Daily Mail

Immensely readable. The plot twist is both sinister and affecting, and so skillfully done that you remember why authors had plot twists in the first place - Guardian

Immaculately calculated. Trevor's cunning is to lull us with inertia so that we are as startled as his characters when the faint air of menace turns into a tempest - Sunday Tribune

Trevor is a master of both language and storytelling. this sinister, elegant, piercingly sad novel is surely one of the books of the year - Hilary Mantel, Sunday Express

A masterpiece. You read and are dazzled. It has one of the most memorable and convincing, most sinister and terrifying of characters created in the modern novel - Susan Hill

Masterly in its tension - Irish Times
