The Outcast – Sadie Jones

The Outcast by Sadie Jones

`If you liked Atonement by Ian McEwan, you’ll love this’ Harper’s Bazaar The bestselling novel from the author of The Snakes, The Outcast is a powerful portrait of unexpected love and treacherous charades against the backdrop of a sleepy post-war English village August 1957. Lewis Aldridge, straight out of jail, stands alone at a Surrey railway station. He’s returned to the village where he grew up: the village where, a decade earlier, tragedy tore his family apart, leaving him to a troubled adolescence without a mother and with a father he barely knew. Now, the only person who understands him is Kit, daughter of a bullying local businessman. Soon they realise that to forge their own futures, they must first confront the darkest secrets of their past. As family, love, passion, sex and violence become ever more so intertwined, can Kit and Lewis find their way back to each other amidst the chaos? —— `A tragic account of the devastating effects of parental abuse and the redemptive power of true love’ Guardian ‘In the tradition of Remains of the Day…a passionate and deeply suspenseful novel’ Margot Livesey —– WINNER OF THE COSTA FIRST NOVEL PRIZE SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORANGE PRIZE FOR FICTION
