‘Will lure you in – then cut to the kill’
Guardian

‘Wonderfully tense’
Emerald Street

‘To read Foxlowe is not unlike wandering through Foxlowe itself on some long night: I felt never quite certain where the corridors might take me, nor whom I might meet on turning a corner; and in the final moments I found myself hurtling down a flight of steps into the dark’ Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent

‘The ending is like a punch to the throat’

Publisher Review

'Will lure you in - then cut to the kill' Sarah Perry, Guardian 'A richly atmospheric Gothic debut . . . Foxlowe may give up its secrets, in the end, but it never gives up its hold' Irish Times 'Meticulously conceived and darkly compelling. Underpinning the claustrophobic horror is a parable of unchecked sibling rivalry, a girl's desperate need for motherly love and the knotted consequences of childhood trauma' Observer 'Wonderfully tense' Emerald Street 'An accomplished debut . . . the ending is like a punch to the throat' The i 'Unsettling and persuasive, impressively well executed and, at the last, utterly disturbing. I'm still flinching away from thinking about the final scene' Alison Flood, Lovereading 'In hypnotic and compelling prose, Foxlowe weaves a darkly disturbing gothic spell' Essie Fox 'Mesmerising, 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 'Wasserberg has a strong and distinctive voice and this is an excellent debut' Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go 'An extraordinary, astonishing story of a girl's longing for motherly love. Beautifully harrowing, and powerfully haunting, it is the most heartbreaking tale I have read this year' Liz Nugent, author of Unravelling Oliver 'I thoroughly enjoyed this vivid and claustrophobic coming-of-age debut' Tasha Kavanagh, author of Things We Have in Common 'Dissonant, haunting and superbly atmospheric. An immensely subtle and profoundly affecting debut' Paraic O'Donnell, author of The Maker of Swans
