The Stargazers

A novel by

'My book of the year' Dinah Jeffries

A dark, dramatic tale of the infinite possibilities of families - how they can anchor you or unseat you - and why unconditional love holds the key to true freedom

'An immersive, beautifully written family saga which already feels like a classic' Red magazine

Then: Fane Hall
Sarah has spent a lifetime trying to bury memories of her childhood: the constant fear, the horror of her school days, and Fane, the vast, crumbling house that was the sole obsession of her mother, Iris, a woman as beautiful as she was cruel.

1969: Hampstead
Rescuing herself from the shadow of Fane, talented Sarah forges a career as a cellist and marries the love of her life, Daniel. But when they move into a near-derelict house in Hampstead and try to get on with becoming a family, Sarah finds the past will not let her go. What is the hold Fane Hall has over her, and her mother? Can she break free of it and keep the promise she made as a child one magical starry night: to look up at the stars, and not down into the darkness...
