LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN''S PRIZE
A FINALIST FOR THE ETHEL WILSON FICTION PRIZE
A GLOBE AND MAIL BEST BOOK
 
A sly, sensual, haunting novel about two sets of sisters whose lives collide when tragedy changes them forever.


Saskia and Jenny are twins alike in appearance only. Saskia is sober, earnest and buried in books. Jenny is glamorous, thrill-seeking and narcissisitic. Still, when Jenny is severely injured in a car crash, Saskia puts her life on hold to be with her sister.
     The differences between Sara and Mattie are even more stark. Mattie is affectionate, curious and intellectually disabled. Sara loves nothing more than fine wines, perfumes and expensive clothing, and leaves home at the first opportunity. But when their mother dies, Sara inherits the duty of caring for her sister. She moves Mattie in with her--but it''s not long until tragedy strikes, and unleashes a cascade of devastating circumstances that bring these Saskia and Sara together in unexpected and destructive ways.
     Razor-sharp and profoundly moving, Consent is a thought-provoking exploration of the complexities of familial duty, and of how love can become entangled with guilt, resentment, and regret.
ANNABEL LYON is the author of seven books for adults and kids, including the internationally bestselling The Golden Mean. She teaches creative writing at the University of British Columbia.
