Part mystery, part psychological drama, this is a darkly comic, unorthodox and thrilling debut.
When I was eighteen, my father fell off a cliff. It was a stupid way to die.
The Venton family are used to living with ghosts. The death of Morwenna's father near Thornton House, the beloved family home in Devon, prompts both Morwenna and her twin brother Corwin to flee in opposite directions.
But connections to the house - and family - are not so easy to break. When, seventeen years after their father's death, Corwin returns, he will force Morwenna to confront a terrifying truth from the past, one that will destroy everything they thought they knew about their childhood home.
The House at the Edge of the World breathlessly reveals how families tear themselves apart, and how they try to bind themselves together again.
