The Book of Rapture: Three children wake up in a basement room. They have been drugged and taken from their beds in the middle of the night. Now they are alone. Where are their parents? Who can they trust? The family has been betrayed to the government and Salt Cottage, their home on a clifftop above the ocean, is no longer safe. Their mother's scientific work has put them all in danger. To protect them, she must let them go. She must put her faith in an old family friend - and in her children's own resilience and courage.
Searing, provocative and unputdownable, The Book of Rapture is a novel of our time that's every bit as passionate and driven as The Bride Stripped Bare. It will compel, seduce and haunt you.
Love Song: Love Song is the story of Lillie Bird, a woman from a locked religious community who one day finds herself in the freedom of a strange new world, England, accused of murdering a man. But it was there, in that land of cold, dark skies and scuffed and tumbling streets that she had first found the pleasure and the sadness, and the love she had, for years, so desperately sought. Love Song is at once a celebration of the human spirit and a powerful story of exile, identity and love.
Mesmerising and heartbreaking, this is Nikki Gemmell's finest work to date.
