When the body of pregnant, fifteen-year-old Hope Lacey is discovered in a churchyard on Christmas morning, the community is shocked, but unsurprised. For Hope lived in The Home, the residence of three young girls, whose violent and disturbing pasts have seen them cloistered away... As a police investigation gets underway, the lives of Hope, Lara and Annie are examined, and the staff who work at the home are interviewed, leading to shocking and distressing revelations ... and clear evidence that someone is seeking revenge.

A gritty, dark and devastating psychological thriller, THE HOME is also an emotive drama and a piercing look at the underbelly of society, where children learn what they live ... if they are allowed to live at all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The characters are so untrustworthy you wont know what to believe, but you won't put it down till you've found out. A superb debut - Sunday Mirror

Cunningly constructed and gorgeously written, this is outstanding - Express

A moving, gripping story ... twists keep coming till the very last page. I loved it. - Erin Kelly

Slickly claustrophobic, this arch story of obsessive, forbidden love taken to the extreme will have you squirming in your seat - Sarah Pinborough

Mind-blowingly good - Julie Burchill
