‘Daphne du Maurier has no rival’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

‘du Maurier is a magician, a virtuouso’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

‘A storyteller of cunning and genius’ SALLY BEAUMAN

‘I tell you your mine will be in ruins and your home destroyed and your children forgotten . . . but this hill will be standing still to confound you.’ So curses Morty Donovan when ‘Cooper John’ Brodrick builds his mine at Hungry Hill.

The Brodricks of Clonmere gain great wealth by harnessing the power of Hungry Hill and extracting the treasure it holds. The Donovans, the original owners of Clonmere Castle, resent the Brodricks’ success and consider the great house and its surrounding land theirs by rights. For generations the feud between the families has simmered, always threatening to break into violence . . .

Daily Mail
As poignant and powerful as du Maurier's better-known romantic fiction
Sally Beauman
A storyteller of cunning and genius
Sunday Telegraph
Daphne du Maurier has no rival
