'If you only read one thriller this year, make it this' CLARE MACKINTOSH, number one bestselling author of I Let You Go 'Emotionally and intellectually thrilling, tremendously exciting' SUNDAY EXPRESS 'Unlike anything else I've read. Haunting and unputdownable' LAURA MARSHALL, number one bestselling author of Friend Request ***THE KINDLE BESTSELLER AND SOON TO BE A MAJOR FILM*** You'd recognise my mother's name if I told it to you. You'd wonder, briefly, where is she now? And didn't she have a daughter while she was missing? And whatever happened to the little girl? Helena's home is like anyone else's, with a husband, two daughters and a job she enjoys. But no one knows the truth about her dark and twisted childhood. Born into captivity and brought up in an isolated cabin until she was twelve, Helena was raised by her terrified, broken mother and the man who held them both prisoner - Helena's own father. Now with news that he has escaped from prison, Helena instinctively knows that her father is coming for her and if she wants to keep her family safe, she must find him - before he finds her. Even if that means returning to the darkest parts of her past, the scariest place imaginable, home. An unforgettable, read-in-one-sitting thriller packed with gripping suspense. _________ 'Sensationally good, I loved this book' LEE CHILD 'Gorgeously written eerie suspense' KARIN SLAUGHTER 'SO GOOD' LAURA MARSHALL 'You won't be able to stop turning the pages' MEGAN ABBOTT 'A wonderful book... Mesmerising' ALEX MARWOOD 'A nail-biter' COSMOPOLITAN 'A knockout' SARAH HILARY 'I was absolutely gripped' GILLY MACMILLAN 'Eerie and breathtaking, terrific and terrifying' TA OBREHT 'Original and exciting, with a thrilling ending' MARK EDWARDS *** HOME will soon be a major film starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander, adapted by Elle Smith and The Revenant script-writer Mark L Smith and directed by Morten Tyldum, director of The Imitation Game *** Previously published as The Marsh King's Daughter

Övrig information

Karen Dionne drew heavily on her experiences during the 1970s in Michigan's Upper Peninsula to write Home, when she and her husband lived in a tent with their six-week-old daughter while they built a tiny cabin. Karen carried water from a stream, made wild apple jelly over a campfire (and defended it against marauding raccoons), sampled wild foods such as cattail heads and milkweed pods, and washed nappies in a bucket (which Karen says is every bit as nasty as it sounds). She enjoys nature photography and lives with her husband in Detroit's northern suburbs.
