9780007398546: The Little House

A contemporary psychological thriller in the style of Ruth Rendell, from one of today’s most versatile and compelling storytellers.

It was easy for Elizabeth. She married the man she loved, bore him two children and made a home for him which was the envy of their friends.

It was harder for Ruth. She married Elizabeth’s son and then found that, somehow, she could never quite measure up…

Isolation, deceit and betrayal fill the gaps between the two individual women and between their different worlds. In this complex thriller, Philippa Gregory deploys all her insight into what women want and what women fear, as Ruth confronts the shifting borders of her own sanity. Laying bare the comfortable conventions of rural England, this spine-tingling novel pulses with suspense until the whiplash double-twist of the denouement.

Review:

‘Fiendishly plotted… this is Gregory at her most convincing. Sunday lunch with the in-laws will never be the same again’
Cosmopolitan

‘Insidiously gripping’ Independent

‘Brilliant psychological chiller… utterly, nail-nibblingly plausible. You will relish its explosive climax and be gripped through to its final superb double-twist finish’ Daily Mail

From the Back Cover:

It was easy for Elizabeth. She married the man she loved, bore him two children and made a home for him which was the envy of their friends.

It was harder for Ruth. She married Elizabeth’s son and then found out that, somehow, she could never quite measure up.

Isolation, deceit and betrayal fill the gaps between the two individual women and between their two worlds. In this complex psychological thriller, the disturbing depths of what women want and what women fear become all too apparent as Ruth confronts the shifting borders of her own sanity. Laying bare the truth behind the comfortable conventions of rural England, this spine-tingling novel pulses with suspense until the whiplash of the denouement.

‘This is Gregory at her most chillingly convincing.
Sunday lunch with the in-laws will never be the same’
