Ghost Wall

by Sarah Moss

Modern and Contemporary Fiction

Ghost Wall Synopsis

This book ratcheted the breath out of me so skilfully, that as soon as I'd finished, the only thing I wanted was to read it again. Jessie Burton Teenage Silvie and her parents are living in a hut in Northumberland as an exercise in experimental archaeology. Her father is a difficult man, obsessed with imagining and enacting the harshness of Iron Age life. Haunting Silvie's narrative is the story of a bog girl, a young woman sacrificed by those closest to her, and the landscape both keeps and reveals the secrets of past violence and ritual as the summer builds to its harrowing climax.
