Foxlowe - A Novel

Eleanor Wasserberg

An astonishing literary debut about a young girl's coming of age in the haunting, enchanting world of an English commune-a modern gothic novel with echoes of Room and Never Let Me Go Foxlowe is a crumbling old house in the moors-a wild, secluded, and magical place. For Green, it is not just home, but everything she knows. Outside, people live in little square houses, with unhappy families and tedious jobs. At Foxlowe, Green runs free through the hallways and orchards, in the fields and among the Standing Stones. Outside, people are corrupted by money. At Foxlowe, the Family shares everything. Outside, the Bad is everywhere. At Foxlowe, everyone in the Family is safe-as long as they follow Freya's rules and perform her rituals. But as Green's little sister, Blue, grows up, she shows more and more interest in the Outside. Before long she starts to talk about becoming a Leaver. . . Building inexorably to its terrifying climax, Foxlowe tells a chilling, irresistible story of superstition and survival, betrayal and redemption, and a utopia gone badly wrong. Praise for Foxlowe: "Mesmerizing, gripping, and beautifully written. It completely sweeps you up from beginning to end. I loved it." -Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat "An excellent debut . . . Wasserberg has a strong and distinctive voice." -Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go From the Trade Paperback edition.
