Summary

Darkness shall light the way…
 
Secretive and satiated by a life that others would consider taboo, Zoë Hall has architected her existence. After petrifying nightmares begin infiltrating her tightly controlled waking life, she inadvertently awakens a preternatural presence that casts darkness into her psyche and draws her deeper into the embattled realms of her dreams. 
 
Part psychological thriller, part surrealistic fantasy, The Leveling explores consciousness and reality, grief and loss, and fearlessly delves into the existential. Pulled between present-day Manhattan and the forested realms of her dreams, Zoë finds herself wedged between the very pillars of light and dark as she comes face-to-face with the most formidable force she’s ever encountered: her own mind.

    'Lush, dark, utterly real and above all achingly romantic' RUTH WARE
     
    In high society England, gossip and scandal are traded over afternoon tea and the country is awash with rumour.
     
    In Lady Hester's opinion, it's just typical that the wickedest gossip of all focuses on her beautiful, impossible husband Crow. Damaged aristocrat, soldier, spy, Crow loves Hester fiercely, but he has a wild past and rumours of a child with his black hair and grey eyes wound Hester more deeply than she is willing to admit. And yet London blazes with a far more lethal whispering campaign that threatens the safety of their own little daughter, Morwenna. Crow's enemies want him tried for treason and soon Morwenna herself is in mortal danger. Hester may love Crow as much as he loves her, but now their baby's life is at risk. There's nothing she won't do to protect their child. So when clever, worldly-wise Countess Lieven drops her guard and says, 'Run... take your baby, Hester, and run,' Hester does exactly that.
     
    Accused of high treason, Crow will do anything to save Hester and Morwenna, even if that means accepting a final mission that might just end in losing them both for good.

    Eight-year-old Hariet, known to all as Ari, is dispatched to Cape Breton and her Aunt Mary, who is purported to eat little girls. But Mary and her partner, Nia, offer an unexpected refuge to Ari and her steadfast companion, Jasper, an imaginary seahorse.
     
    Yet the respite does not last, and Ari is torn from her aunts and forced back to her twisted mother and fractured sisters. Her new stepfather, Len, and his family offer hope, but as Ari grows to adore them, she’s severed violently from them too, when her mother moves in with the brutal Dick Irwin.
     
    Through the sexual revolution and drug culture of the 1960s, Ari struggles with her father’s legacy and her mother’s addictions, testing limits with substances that numb and men who show her kindness. Ari spins through a chaotic decade of loss and love, the devilish and divine, with wit, tenacity, and the astonishing balance unique to seahorses.
     
    The Clay Girl is a beautiful tour de force about a child sculpted by kindness, cruelty, and the extraordinary power of imagination, and her families — the one she’s born in to and the one she creates.
