9780151275823: Eden Close

Nearly two decades of unfinished business finally demand resolution. Back in town to sell the family home after his mother's death, Andrew is drawn instead to the house next door. Eden, sexually abused and blinded the year Andrew left, lives there still, inexplicably secluded by her stepmother. Any hope of a future for either of them requires unravelling her past.

Review:

Shreve writes with power and passion ( DAILY EXPRESS)

Anita Shreve has a knack for wry observation and for capturing the agony of emotion ( DAILY TELEGRAPH)

EDEN CLOSE is a novel of sensibility. Its insights are keen, its language measured and haunting. In it a sense of loss and rapture is everywhere ( NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW)

A first novel that turns rural gothic horrors into a story of fine, high love... ( KIRKUS REVIEW)
