Summary

A teenage girl gets swept up in the glamorous lives of the family who live in the grand house in her quiet village in 1930's Cornwall.

Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer, sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years. And when the owners arrive for the summer - a handsome, dashing brother and sister - Lou is quite swept off her feet and into a world of moonlit cocktail parties and glamour beyond her wildest dreams.

But, as she grows closer to the Cardews, is she abandoning her own ambitions... and is there something darker lurking at the heart of the Cardew family?

NOTE: There are references made to characters having 'lovers' but this isn't gone into in detail. Characters are frequently intoxicated.

NOTE: YA Book Prize Shortlist 2019

Book of the week

A gloriously atmospheric & memorable coming of age story - the late 1920's setting is so well drawn & the banter between the two leads crackles with sexual tension. Just wonderful.
