  • ‘A brilliant depiction of both romantic rapture and heartfelt delusion’ (Daily Telegraph), Slack-Tide is the new sucker punch of a novel from Elanor Dymott, author of Every Contact Leaves a Trace

    It is four years since the loss of a child broke her marriage, and Elizabeth is fiercely protective of her independence. She meets Robert – exuberant, generous, apparently care-free – and they fall in love with breath-taking speed.

    Slack-Tide tracks the ebbs and flows of the affair: passionate, coercive, intensely sexual. When you’ve known lasting love and lost it, what price will you pay to find it again?

    ‘When two people meet is it need, fantasy or love? Slack-Tide takes us on an urgent journey and kept me reading late into the night’ Esther Freud
