  • Doesn't every marriage have a dark side?

    ‘Beautifully written, chilling and absorbing’ Adele Parks, Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of Lies Lies Lies

    ‘Her best novel yet… Twisty, malevolent and gripping’ Lisa Jewell, No. 1 bestselling author of The Family Upstairs

    To the outside world Hannah married the perfect man. Behind the closed doors of their imposing home it’s a very different story. Nathan controls everything Hannah does. He chooses her clothes, checks her receipts, and keeps her passport locked away. But why does she let him? Years before, in the midst of a relentless storm, the tragic events of one night changed everything. And Hannah has been living with the consequences ever since. Keeping Nathan happy. Doing as she’s told.
     
    But the past is about to catch up with them.
     
    Set against the unforgiving backdrop of a Cornish fishing port in the ‘90s, this is a devastating exploration of the power of coercive control in a marriage where nothing is quite as it seems…

    Praise for The Storm:

    ‘Beautifully written, chilling and absorbing’ Adele Parks

    ‘Her best novel yet. This twisty, malevolent and gripping story of a controlling husband and his oddly compliant wife was virtually impossible to put down. The dark and craggy Cornwall backdrop is exquisitely drawn and the sense of foreboding that runs through the whole novel is masterfully done’ Lisa Jewell

    ‘An evocative story of coercive control and the decisions – often disastrous – that we make in order to protect the ones we love. Amanda Jennings is a fantastic storyteller and she’s at her very best here: warm-hearted, darkly atmospheric, and wholly addictive' Lucy Atkins

    ‘Suspenseful, beautifully written, and utterly compelling’ Alice Feeney

    ‘A brilliant book. Gripping, intelligent, and beautifully written’ Cass Green

    ‘Vivid and evocative, the beautifully drawn characters and Cornish setting will linger in your mind long after you’ve turned the final page’ Lucy Dawson

    'Unravelling the secrets that lie beneath a toxic marriage. Both beautifully crafted and chilling. A compelling tale you won't want to put down’ Colette McBeth
