'Dazzlingly good, utterly engrossing . . . Without doubt one of the best novels of recent years' Elizabeth Day, author of How To Fail

The sensational Sunday Times bestseller from Jessie Burton, the million-copy bestselling author of The Miniaturist and The Muse.

One winter's afternoon on Hampstead Heath in 1980, Elise Morceau meets Constance Holden and quickly falls under her spell. Connie is bold and alluring, a successful writer whose novel is being turned into a major Hollywood film. Elise follows Connie to LA, a city of strange dreams and swimming pools and late-night gatherings of glamorous people. But whilst Connie thrives on the heat and electricity of this new world where everyone is reaching for the stars and no one is telling the truth, Elise finds herself floundering. When she overhears a conversation at a party that turns everything on its head, Elise makes an impulsive decision that will change her life forever.

Three decades later, Rose Simmons is seeking answers about her mother, who disappeared when she was a baby. Having learned that the last person to see her was Constance Holden, a reclusive novelist who withdrew from public life at the peak of her fame, Rose is drawn to the door of Connie's imposing house in search of a confession . . .

From the million-copy bestselling author of The Miniaturist and The Muse, The Confession is a luminous, powerful and deeply moving novel about secrets and storytelling, motherhood and friendship, and how we lose and find ourselves.

Review:

Dazzlingly good. The Confession is that rare thing: an utterly engrossing novel which asks big questions without ever once losing sight of the storyteller's need to entertain and move. I turned the final pages in tears and I know already I shall return to it again and again. Without doubt one of the best novels of recent years -- Elizabeth Day, author of The Party and How to Fail

I haven’t enjoyed a book so much in a long time . . . I lost myself in the story, not wanting to come up for air. A bold, intelligent, wonderful novel -- Sarah Winman, author of Tin Man

Burton is asking important questions in The Confession – questions about motherhood, art and creativity, love, friendship – and in doing this, she has created three utterly fascinating characters. Connie, Elise, and Rose are complicated; complex in ways that women are so rarely allowed to be in literature, demanding that their stories be heard. This is a beautiful novel and one that will stay with me for a very long time -- Louise O’Neill, author of Only Ever Yours

Jessie Burton always writes perceptively about female identity and creativity, but here she also explores motherhood in all its guises and nuances to stunning effect, Red

Her best yet, I’m dazzled by it . . . it’s ambitious and courageous in its scope and I was thrilled and emboldened. The Confession is clever, assured and compelling and I am deeply jealous of every reader who has it all ahead of them -- Daisy Buchanan, author of The Sisterhood

Successful writer Constance 'Connie' Holden and Elise Morceau meet by chance on Hampstead Heath in 1980. Elise follows Connie to the glamorous world of LA, but it's not long before she makes a decision that changes everything, and a compelling mystery begins to unfold. An absorbing tale of self-discovery, Woman & Home

An irresistible tale of families, deception and the consequences of our choices. With Connie, Rose and Elise, Jessie pours light into the closed-off parts of our minds, and explores how we can be both masters of and servants to our own fate. She unpicks you stitch by stitch, then puts you back together again -- Stacey Halls, author of The Familiars

A masterpiece about the autonomy of women and their roles in society, navigating Hollywood stardom, motherhood and fragmented identity, Irish Tatler

An absorbing, intelligent piece of storytelling that succeeds in sustaining its mystery to the end, Observer

The story of the intoxicating relationship between two women, and its fallout, Sunday Times Culture
