Set during and just after the First World War, The Lie is an enthralling, heart-wrenching novel of love, memory and devastating loss.
Cornwall, 1920: A young man stands on a headland, looking out to sea. He is back from the war, homeless and without family. Behind him lies the terror of the trenches. Behind him is also the most intense relationship of his life. Daniel has survived, but will he ever be able to escape the terrible, unforeseen consequences of a lie?
"Never striking a false note, The Lie is one of those rare and arresting novels that make you think and feel with greater lucidity." (
"An electrifying and original talent" ( Guardian)
