Disillusioned with living in a close-knit Yorkshire farming community, twenty-six year old Alan needs a release from his mundane but pressured life. Intelligent and beautiful, Catherine is everything he wants, but she is as lonely and messed up as he is. Love is inevitable between these two misfits but Alan gets in too deep before he finds out the truth about her. The local community will not condone the relationship and are eager to remind Alan of his delinquent past. Whilst Catherine has a shadow of her own to contend with, Alan is forced to face his demons, the wrath of the locals and the law. Can love survive where people are quick to judge but refuse to know?

Compelling Review by Hayley
I really enjoyed ths book which surpirsed me a little as it's not my normal read. Very compelling and hard to put down. Characters are believeable, and even if I was sometimes slightly annoyed with Alan's reaction, it wasn't due to the writing, but to the type of person Alan is, which says a lot about how well this is written. Looking forward to reading more from this author! (Posted on 17/11/2013)
Darkly absorbing Review by Jenny
I discovered with this book that you don't need to particularly like or admire your hero to want to know his story. It was Emily Bronte who first made Yorkshire famous with Wuthering Heights. Here again it is a landscape that plays a role as backdrop to personal struggles, growth and 21st century angst as Alan and Catherine try to make sense of their relationship with each other and with the community they live in. A prequel is promised in which we discover more about Alan's beginnings, and then, hopefully, what happens to him and Catherine after they escape the censure of family and friends.
