One night is enough to swallow a lifetime of lives.
When Ruth Ardingly and her family first drive up from London and view The Well, they are enchanted by a jewel of a place. But the locals suspect foul play in its verdant fields and drooping fruit trees, and Ruth becomes increasingly isolated as she struggles to explain why her land flourishes whilst her neighbours' produce withers and dies.
Fearful of envious locals and suspicious of those who seem to be offering help, Ruth grows less and less sure whom she can trust.
"The Well has the pulse of a thriller combined with a futuristic evocation of a Big Brother society." (Allison Pearson)
"There was so much that impressed me.... I loved this book!" (Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist)
