HER OBSESSION. YOUR HOME.

'A beautiful, stirring story of loss and obsession' Lisa Jewell, Sunday Times No.1 bestselling author of The Family Upstairs

'Haunting and evocative' Clare Mackintosh, Sunday Times No.1 bestselling author of I See You and Let Me Lie

Cornwall, summer of 1986.

The Davenports, with their fast cars and glamorous clothes, living the dream in a breathtaking house overlooking the sea.

If only... thinks sixteen-year-old Tamsyn, her binoculars trained on the perfect family in their perfect home.

If only her life was as perfect as theirs.

If only Edie Davenport would be her friend.

If only she lived at The Cliff House...

Amanda Jennings weaves a haunting tale of obsession, loss and longing, set against the brooding North Cornish coastline, destined to stay with readers long after the final page is turned.
