Waterstones Says

Ancient past abuts chilling present in a novel to rival Moss’s superb Tidal Zone. One of the year’s finest novels, as the Independent says, ‘inventive, intelligent, and like no other author’s work.’

Longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2019

'This book ratcheted the breath out of me so skilfully, that as soon as I'd finished, the only thing I wanted was to read it again.' - Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist

Teenage Silvie and her parents are living in a hut in Northumberland as an exercise in experimental archaeology.

Her father is a difficult man, obsessed with imagining and enacting the harshness of Iron Age life. Haunting Silvie's narrative is the story of a bog girl, a young woman sacrificed by those closest to her, and the landscape both keeps and reveals the secrets of past violence and ritual as the summer builds to its harrowing climax.

“A bite-sized masterpiece.”

I spent the last third of this tiny book with my hand clamped over my mouth & my heart thumping. Moss' writing is sharp, concise, penetrating & shatteringly truthful.
