9780006499657: The Twilight Child

A riveting story of supernatural suspense and ghostly romance, from the author of The Sacrifice Stone and The Quiet Earth.

It is the hot September of 1942, and Clare is waiting for the birth of her first child while her husband, Will, is away fighting. When she accepts the gift of an antique cradle from an old lady in the village, Clare begins to have arresting visions of an older, darker Firlebury. At the same time, a soldier, Gabriel, appears, gentle, kind and comforting. In this twilight world of alluring beauty and brutal savagery, is she awake, or is she dreaming?

Then, with the birth of baby Michael, Clare realises that someone, or something, is threatening her child. As the forces of an ancient evil gather about her with terrifying violence, it seems that the mysterious Gabriel alone can save her. But will salvation force her into a betrayal of all she holds dear?

With page-turning suspense, vivid atmosphere and intriguing romance, Elizabeth Harris weaves a fascinating tale full of drama and excitement, which her readers will find both irresistible and compulsive.

Review:

‘Spooky, romantic, intriguing’
Sarah Broadhurst, Bookseller

‘Enigmatic… the author really captures the imagination’
Sunday Independent

From the Back Cover:

CAN YOUR IMAGINATION RUN AWAY WITH YOU…?

It is 1942, and Clare is awaiting the birth of her first child. Her husband, Will, is away fighting, and alone in their cottage in the Sussex village of Firlebury, she waits anxiously for news. Her worries increase when, accompanying the gift of an antique cradle, come mysterious visions of an older, darker, Firlebury. Then she meets Gabriel, a soldier like Will, who seems to offer the support and comfort she so desperately needs. In this twilight world of alluring beauty and brutal savagery, is she awake, or is she dreaming?

When her son, Michael, is born, Clare realises the full power of the darkness stealthily surrounding her and her child. As the forces of an ancient evil gather about her with terrifying violence, it seems that the mysterious Gabriel alone can help – but only at the risk of jeopardising everything she holds dear…

“Enigmatic…the author really captures the imagination”
