Product description

Review

'Hamer writes with great skill and emotional depth - about the confusions of adolescence and identity, the bond between mothers and daughters and the redemptive power of love.' (Hannah Beckerman Observer)

'[Hamer's] fascination with the thresholds between childhood and adulthood, sanity and insanity, chosen and blood families, and her subtle understanding of the clean, often disturbing logic of childhood morality, evoke both Jeanette Winterson and Ian McEwan...This is an elegiac and uplifting novel about the indissoluble bonds between mothers and daughters and a reminder of how the imagination can set you free.' (Melanie McGrath Guardian)

I felt instantly protective of Ruby; the teenager with a secret so chilling I had to check the front door was locked. Hamer's brilliant storytelling made me read on for fear Ruby's fate depended on it. (Anna Silverman Grazia)

Hamer's ability to conjure an atmosphere is certainly powerful. Particularly resonant is her portrait of the beauty and menace of the Forest of Dean. (Rebecca Nicholson The Sunday Times)

'What holds the novel together is the tremendous momentum of the story itself, which gathers pace with every page, hooking you into its strangeness and keeping you hooked to the very last word. As an exploration of the hold exerted on us by the past, The Doll Funeral is entirely successful, and for Ruby, the call of the dead ultimately brings understanding. (Rebecca Abrams Financial Times)

Book Description

The dark and glittering new novel from The Sunday Times Bestselling author Kate Hamer is the perfect second book from the author of The Girl in the Red Coat.
