Waterstones Says

Fuelled by slow-burning dread, Such Pretty Things places Clara and Stephen in the care of their Auntie who has always longed to have children of her own in this disturbing and evocative slice of modern Gothic.

Following their mother's accident, Clara and Stephen are sent to stay with their aunt and uncle. It's a summer to explore the remote house, the walled garden and woods. Beyond it all the loch sits, silent and waiting. Auntie has wanted them for so long - real children with hair to brush and arms to slip into the clothes made just for them. All those hours washing, polishing, preparing beds and pickling fruit and now Clara and Stephen are here, like a miracle, on her doorstep.

But as they explore their new home, the children uncover ghosts Auntie buried long ago. As their worlds collide, Clara and Auntie struggle for control. And every day they spend there, Clara can feel unknown forces changing her brother. Haunted and bewildered, this hastily formed family begins to tear itself apart.

“Dark, brilliant story”

Such Pretty Things was a brilliantly written book. I was gripped from beginning to end; I desperately wanted there to be a happy ending. It was a dark story which started off subtle and ended up with complete horror.... More

“Brilliantly creepy”

Just finished this book and I loved it. I must admit I am a fan of Lisa Heathfield’s books. They are always beautifully written and tackle painful and deeply emotional issues with great sensitivity. So I was excited... More

“a thriller of human drama with some weird tie-in horror elements”

Such Pretty Things is a thriller of human drama with some weird tie-in horror elements that unfortunately fit awkwardly as they are only introduced into this mess without ever bearing fruit.
