Review

'Margaret Leroy's eerily lovely novel The Drowning Girl is one of those rare books you'll sit with till your bones ache. The mystery of why 4-year-old Sylvie longs to return to a house she has never seen, a family she cannot have known, takes this peculiar child, her anxious single mother, and a romantically scruffy psychologist onto the windswept beaches of a tiny coastal Irish village a setting as enchantingly perilous as childhood itself.' --Oprah Magazine

'This is a really special book. Sylvie s vulnerability is so powerfully drawn, so flesh-and-blood real, that you want to reach into the pages and protect her yourself.' --Louise Candlish, bestselling author of Since I Don't Have You

'This is a really enjoyable book and perfect holiday reading.' --Adele Geras, bestselling author of A Hidden Life

Synopsis

A haunted child. A desperate mother. An unspeakable truth. 'She's my daughter, but in some weird way I feel she isn't really my child'. Young single mum Grace is drowning. Her little girl Sylvie is distant, troubled and prone to violent tantrums which the child psychiatrists blame on Grace. But Grace knows there's something more to what's happening to Sylvie. There has to be. Travelling from the London suburbs to the west coast of Ireland, Grace and Sylvie embark on a journey of shocking discovery, forcing Grace to question everything she believes in and changing both their lives forever.
