Under the Sun

(2017)
A novel by

 
 
Anna's friends and family think she is living the dream in her beautiful finca under the Spanish sun. But the reality is far from perfect. The handsome, complicated man she was building a life with has left with little more than a note to say good-bye, and the future she imagined has crashed around her ears. Anna has secretly embarked on an ill-advised affair and lives above the dingy bar she runs in the sleepy beach town of Marea, surrounded by British expats as homesick and stuck as she is.

When Simon, a local businessman, offers to rent the finca, Anna hopes it will pave the way for her escape. But there is more to him than meets the eye, and when a body washes up on the beach in mysterious circumstances, Anna realizes she may be the only one with the power to unravel the truth. But how can she prove that Simon is connected, and how can she reclaim her house? Anna is prepared to risk everything to get home - even though she's no longer sure where home really is.

Urgent, gripping and brilliantly observed, Under the Sun is an exhilarating novel about heartbreak, identity, migration and finding a place to call home.

Praise for this book

"Brilliantly atmospheric and creepy . . . I loved the heat of it, the writing, and the pulse of disappointment and hope. It's very, very clever." - Sabine Durrant

"In her beautifully written novel, Lottie Moggach gives rare insights into human relationships and the appalling things we can do to each other. Subtle, insightful and utterly compelling." - Rosamund Lupton
