An electrifying novel about disputed territory, sibling love, and devastating revenge. In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Aramon, the owner, is so haunted by his violent past that he’s become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin. Meanwhile, his sister Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. When he sets his sights on the Mas, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Diana | 2/20/2014

    " Rose Tremain has become one of my favorite writers. I'm sure this book must have some flaws, but it has some breathtaking moments, such as a description of horse-back riding I want to copy to mail to sister and give to my boss. The third of her books I've read, and loved each one more than the last. "

    " Received this as a Christmas gift last year and finally had the time to read it this Christmas. She's a wonderful writer. Now curious about her other work. "

    " I didn't expect I would like it this much. It's a wonderful story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joe Stamber | 2/18/2014

    " I was introduced to Rose Tremain by a friend a few years ago and this is (I think) the third book I have read, after "The Way I Found Her" and "Sacred Country". Many of the books I read would score a 7/10, including this one, so it's a bit frustrating that I have to choose 3 or 4 stars - there's a big difference between 6/10 and 8/10. Reading reviews of Rose Tremain books makes me thinks that people either "get" her or they don't. I definitely do. I won't go into the plot as no doubt many others have. As far as enjoyment of this book goes, I would place it between "The Way I Found Her" (which is better) and "Sacred Country" (not quite as good). Suffice to say, if you like RT, you'll like this. If you have never tried RT, I would recommend "The Way I Found Her" as a good start. "
