'A captivating mystery: beautifully written, with a rich sense of place, a cast of memorable characters, and lots of deep, dark secrets' Kate Morton, bestselling author of The Clockmaker's Daughter
Outside a remote manor house in an idyllic wood, a baby girl is found.
The Harrington family takes her in and disbelief quickly turns to joy. They're grieving a terrible tragedy of their own and the beautiful baby fills them with hope, lighting up the house's dark, dusty corners.
Desperate not to lose her to the authorities, they keep her secret, suspended in a blissful summer world where normal rules of behaviour - and the law - don't seem to apply.
But within days a body will lie dead in the grounds.
And their dreams of a perfect family will shatter like glass.
Years later, the truth will need to be put back together again, piece by piece . . .
From the author of Black Rabbit Hall, The Glass House is an emotional, thrilling book about family secrets and belonging - and how we find ourselves when we are most lost.

Author Eve Chase on how she penned her novel The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde, creating her fictional narrator Margot Wilde and the 'wildly unplanned directions' a plot can go in.
When Margot and her three sisters arrive at Applecote during the heatwave of '59, they find their aunt and uncle reeling from the disappearance of their daughter, Audrey. Drawn into the life Audrey left behind, the stifling summer takes a shocking, deadly turn.
