Synopsis

Nightwoods by Charles Frazier

The main lesson Luce had learned was that you couldn't count on anybody. In the lonesome beauty of the forest, across the far shore of the mountain lake from town, Luce acts as caretaker to an empty, decaying Lodge, a relic of holidaymakers a century before. Her days are long and peaceful, her nights filled with Nashville radio and yellow lights shimmering on the black water. A solitary life, and the perfect escape. Until the stranger children come. Bringing fire. And murder. And love.

Reviews

'What makes it so appealing is the voice of Will Cooper, which is potent, wry, insightful and utterly convincing ... as rich a fiction as it is an eventful one.'
Andrew Rosenheim, Time Literary Supplement on THIRTEEN MOONS

'Its narrative has a thoroughly human scale and informs just as much as it moves and entertains'
Frank Egerton, The Times on THIRTEEN MOONS

'Frazier is a timeless master magician who renders the texture of the landscape, emotion and history all excruciatingly real'
Time Out on THIRTEEN MOONS

'A romance of love, of friendship, of family, of land. Frazier has inhaled the spirit of the age and breathes it into the reader's being'
Erica Wagner, The Times on COLD MOUNTAIN

'A poetic account of hardship, violence and longing... above all a sustained flight of the imagination'
Daily Telegraph on COLD MOUNTAIN

It was the inspiration for the Oscar-winning film directed by Anthony Minghella and starring Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, and Renee Zellweger.

A second novel, THIRTEEN MOONS, was published by Sceptre in 2007.

NIGHTWOODS, Charles' latest novel set in a lakeside town in 1960s North Carolina, will be published by Sceptre in October 2011.
