Acquitted of the murders, Constance has returned home, where Merricat protects her from the hostility of the villagers.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle
‘Her greatest book … at once whimsical and harrowing, a miniaturist’s charmingly detailed fantasy sketched inside a mausoleum … the deeper we sink, the deeper we want to go’ Donna Tartt
Living in the Blackwood family home with only her sister Constance and her Uncle Julian for company, Merricat just wants to preserve their delicate way of life. But ever since Constance was acquitted of murdering the rest of the family, the world isn’t leaving the Blackwoods alone. And when Cousin Charles arrives, armed with overtures of friendship and a desperate need to get into the safe, Merricat must do everything in her power to protect the remaining family.
