Astor, Ontario. 1904.
A boy staggers out of the forest covered in blood and collapses at the feet of 16-year-old Emmy. While others are suspicious and afraid, Emmy is drawn to him. Is he really the monster the townsfolk say he is?

Astor, Ontario. 1994.
Megan arrives from London for her great grandmother Emmy's 105th birthday. It should be a happy family occasion, but Megan is nursing a broken heart and carrying a secret she fears might consume her.

One family. Two women. A century of secrets. A timeless love story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Completely engrossing. I couldn't put it down. * Cat Clarke, author of Girlhood *
Two strong female voices and a story to match * Joanna Nadin, author of Joe All Alone *
A gripping story about how we treat strangers, children and those outside the law [with] tantalising exposition of mystery and crime brilliantly done. A really accomplished and enjoyable YA novel * Amanda Craig, author of The Lie of the Land *
I enjoyed this book immensely . . . it's the sign of a good story that I was drawn into both narratives . . . deals with complex emotional subjects . . . I enjoyed how the stories connected through history and family, and it enabled me to reflect on how societal attitudes changed during the period of one woman's life. * Juno magazine *
A breathtaking murder-mystery and much more * the Jewish Chronicle *
What a wonderful read! Keren David's first historical novel is written with feeling, great characterisation and good historical context. A great read. * The School Librarian *
This fast-moving story will appeal to teenagers and adults alike . . . A warm, thrilling book about how we all have dark secrets, and the special bond between youth and age. I enjoyed reading it. * The Lady *
Stranger deftly moves between both timelines, offering up two distinct voices and perspectives while at the same time presenting parallels in these young women's lives and choices . . . The truth that unfolds across the two narratives is complicated and compelling, adding a deeply satisfying mystery element to this exploration of family and love * Irish Times *
Fear and suspicion of the apparently alien feature powerfully . . . Skillful, original and gripping, the plot-lines are woven together into a remarkable detective discovery * the Spectator *
Keren David's writing . . . has heart without being sentimental, is skilfully plotted, and its emotional and moral landscapes are nuanced. * the Guardian on Salvage *
David gets better with every book * Daily Mail on Salvage *

“Twisting time-skipping mystery in Canada”

Wow, what a book. I’d only read Keren David’s CUCKOO before I read this one, and this was a completely different novel that gripped me as soon as I read the blurb. It’s historical and contemporary, with mystery and... More
