This edgy, seductive, tense and sinister debut, perfect for reading groups, will have you, like us, engrossed; but can you really trust the memory and recollections of the narrator Rachel? If you enjoyed Notes on a Scandal, Before I Go to Sleep or Sister then this could be right up your street.
Signs of Life by Anna Raverat
Ten years ago, Rachel had an affair. It left her life in pieces. Now, writing at her window, she tries to put those pieces together again. She has her memories, recollections of dreams, and her old yellow notebook. More than anything, she wants to be honest. Rachel knows that her memory is patchy and her notebook incomplete. But there is something else. Something terrible happened to her lover. Her account is hypnotic, delicate, disquieting and bold. But is she telling us the truth?
'A beautifully written psychological study, cleverly told'
'Compelling ... its haunting tone and sinister implications, about reliability of memory and the fatally destructive impact one action can have, is both chilling and deeply affecting'
'Will have you reading till 3 a.m.'
'Classy and accomplished'
'Compelling, gritty and intelligent'
Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
