A juicy, powerful read featuring twin sisters who have drifted apart, and the shocking family secrets that bind them—for readers of The Woman in Cabin 10 and I Let You Go When the past knocks, someone must answer. In a bustling suburban neighborhood in Manchester, England, sits an unassuming house. There is no sign of life behind the unwashed windows, but Robin Marshall is inside. Driven by fears and obsessions, racked by anxiety, Robin is frantically pushing her body through punishing workouts, eating little, haunted by what happened to her family when she was a girl. Robin’s only connection to the outside world is through her rear windows and the lives she spies upon in the apartment house across the way. Then a stranger starts pounding on her door. Sarah Marshall is Robin’s twin, estranged from her sister after their parents’ betrayal and a violation at the hands of a man she should have been able to trust. Sarah has recently lost custody of the child she loves more than anything and has set off on her own, hoping that somewhere in England she can find Robin, the braver twin, the rock star, the survivor, the savior. These two young women, polar opposites, cannot go on unless they reckon with the past. While Sarah, slowly unraveling, searches for her sister’s hiding place, Robin sees another life hanging in the balance in the lighted windows across the street. It is a life only Robin can save—as long as she never looks away. In a novel that is stunning in its twists, shocks, and gripping psychological suspense, two sisters find themselves on the razor’s edge of sanity. Untold secrets, a ghastly lie, and suffocating guilt hold them back. Only one astounding act can set them free. And one last revelation will leave readers gasping in surprise.

Seerstone is a thoroughly researched, tension-wrought tale of greed, and how it dazzles and threatens, sometimes using the most arcane and unearthly means, to conquer a man and his family, and to wring seemingly impossible changes, potentially enormous changes in the life of Dayer Preston, who, with his wife, has always striven to work toward the light, as they understand it. The story takes place at the dawn of the Nineteenth Century, in Williker Township, a cold and dying place, in western New York State, at a time when it seemed that there was no magic strong enough to make things right, to bring forth abundance from an earth that withheld its bounty, despite man’s best efforts. Despite the magic that stirred the spirits of heaven and earth. It is a strange and unearthly time. It was an era in which an average, everyday person knew that if you put a few hairs in a glass of water, they would turn into worms overnight, and that to assure prosperity, lamens scrawled with magic words would be placed behind the mantel. The line between magic and reality was blurred, and so the arrival of a ritual magician at your door on an early spring night wasn’t much to be noticed, not even when he began to bring a struggling farm family closer and closer to the line between objective reality and a world ruled over by magic words scrawled on a page. It is a tale of mystery. How much can the magician Walters bring forth? How much of what he says are lies, and how much of what he possesses can bring forth bounty, potential wealth, from an unforgiving earth? How much is simply evil, and can it be controlled? And why is Dayer Preston so necessary to the grandest of all the magic rituals that awaits them?

"Narbikova focusses on the life of the female body and the misuses of logic. Her prose, dense with allusions to both mass and high culture, features a Sternean irony in regard to narrative, and what was seen by the critics as a dangerous tendency to insist on the primacy of the sexual and the natural. Her subversive style switches from the banal to the offensive, turning cliches against themselves in the process."--BOOK JACKET.
