`If you liked Atonement by Ian McEwan, you'll love this' Harper's Bazaar
The bestselling novel behind the BBC mini-series, The Outcast is a powerful portrait of unexpected love and treacherous charades against the backdrop of a sleepy post-war English village
August 1957, Surrey. Lewis is nineteen, straight out of jail, and stands alone at a railway station.
He's returned to the village where he grew up: the village where, a decade earlier, tragedy tore his family apart, leaving him to a troubled adolescence without a mother and with a father he barely knew.
Now, the only person who understands him is Kit, daughter of a bullying local businessman. Soon they realise that to forge their own futures, they must first confront the darkest secrets of their past.
As family, love, passion, sex and violence become ever more so intertwined, can Kit and Lewis find their way back to each other amidst the chaos?
