Already a Sunday Times bestselling author, The Vanishing deserves to be the break-out book for Sophia Tobin. Stunning, twisting historical fiction for all fans of The Miniaturist, The Essex Serpent and Burial Rites.
All that I was I gave to you. All that I am you took from me. All that you have I will destroy... On top of the Yorkshire Moors, in an isolated spot carved out of a barren landscape, lies White Windows, a house of shadows and secrets. Here lives Marcus Twentyman, a hard-drinking but sensitive man, and his sister, the brisk widow, Hester. When runaway Annaleigh first meets the Twentymans, their offer of employment and lodgings seems a blessing. Only later does she discover the truth. But by then she is already in the middle of a web of darkness and intrigue, where murder seems the only possible means of escape...'As dark and eerie and gothic as the Yorkshire Moors it is set on' Stylist'Vivid, absorbing and wonderfully gothic with shades of Sarah Waters and Emily and Charlotte Bronte' Kate Riordan 'Playful and menacing, The Vanishing is a pitch perfect evocation of a classic nineteenth century Gothic novel which confirms Sophia Tobin as a writer of the highest calibre' William Ryan, author of The Constant Soldier
