Set in seventeenth-century rural England, BONE HOUSE is the tale of two women. One is large, voluptuous and charismatic - a prostitute to whom many, not just men, are drawn. The other is young, slight and solitary - a servant whose quest to solve the mystery of the prostitute's death leads her to shocking discoveries, unexpected love, and the beginnings of a future. Gothic, elegant, sensual, and fiercely compelling, BONE HOUSE is an uncommonly assured debut.
