Water Shall Refuse Them (Paperback)

£9.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

The heatwave of 1976. Following the accidental drowning of her sister, sixteen-year-old Nif and her family move to a small village on the Welsh borders to escape their grief. But rural seclusion doesn't bring any relief. As her family unravels, Nif begins to put together her own form of witchcraft - collecting talismans from the sun-starved land. That is, until she meets Mally, a teen boy who takes a keen interest in her, and has his own secret rites to divulge.



Reminiscent of the suspense of Shirley Jackson and soaked in the folk horror of the British landscape, Water Shall Refuse Them is an atmospheric coming-of-age novel and a thrilling debut.

Set in the midst of the 1970's heatwave, Lucie McKnight Hardy's Water Shall Refuse Them is a beguiling coming-of-age debut following the travails of a young girl called Nif on a summer break with her family in the Welsh countryside. Weaving elements of witchcraft, ritual and the potent possibilities of the British landscape, McKnight Hardy delicately explores the creeping horror of grief and the shifting perspectives of the human psyche in the wake of major trauma. Perfect for fans of Iain Banks, Shirley Jackson and Stephen King, Water Shall Refuse Them is an outstanding alternative addition to your summer reading list!
