When Diana's mother dies, she impulsively invites estranged half-sister Valerie and her nine-year-old son to stay at her grand country home. On the night of the funeral, fueled by wine and years of resentment, the sisters argue and a terrible accident occurs. The foundations of a well-ordered life begin to crack and the lies begin to surface, one dangerous secret after another.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gripping . . . Filled with the acute psychological insights that distinguished the author's debut The Well . . . Chanter's gift for depicting emotional upheaval pervades this tale of crumbling families -- Anita Sethi * * Observer * *
Darkly unfolds with family secrets, moral complexities and slow-burning revenge . . . This young boy's journey of personal growth beyond the difficulties in his past is the emotional backbone of an eerie, page-turning family thriller * * The List * *
PRAISE FOR THE WELL: A markedly assured new voice * * Sunday Times * *
Astoundingly assured . . . A brilliant writer * * Observer * *
I loved this book -- Jessie Burton, author of THE MINIATURIST
Ripples with mystery and intrigue from the first page * * Daily Mail * *
I was gripped by Catherine Chanter's The Well immediately. The beauty of her prose is riveting, the imagery so assured. This is an astonishing debut -- SARAH WINMAN, author of WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT
Calls to mind fiction by Margaret Atwood and Michel Faber although stylistically Chanter has developed a strong voice of her own -- Anita Sethi * * Observer * *
A drought-ridden, riot-threatened country; a sinister religious cult; a child's unsolved murder; and a culture of surveillance. Catherine Chanter's first novel has the ingredients of a dystopian nightmare, yet it's more . . . a literary page-turner * * Independent * *
A haunting novel about ordinary people confronted by extraordinary situations * * Elle * *
