Summary
"Sometimes, getting what you want leaves you with unexpected consequences. What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person? If that person happens to be your sister's boyfriend, the consequences threaten to be far-reaching and potentially deadly. Bone Deep is a contemporary novel of sibling rivalry, love, betrayal and the inevitable family fall-out. It is a dual narrative, told in alternative chapters by Mac, a woman bent on keeping the secrets of the past from her only child, and Lucie, whose past has produced the greatest secret of all: a concealed pregnancy. Their story is underpinned by the creaking presence of an abandoned water mill, and haunted by the local legend of two long-dead sisters, themselves rivals in love, and ready to point an accusing finger from the pages of history."--Publisher's description
Summary
Mac, a retired academic and writer, is working on a new collection of folktales, inspired by local legends, and at the insistence of her only child, Arthur, she hires a young assistant, Lucie, to live in a cottage on her property and help her transcribe them. What Arthur doesn’t know is that his mother is determined to keep the secrets of her past from ever being discovered. And what Mac doesn’t know is that Lucie has a few complicated secrets of her own
