The Companion is a beautiful and powerfully-told story of buried secrets and unsolved murder, set between the 1930s and the present day, on the wild Yorkshire moors.
‘Utterly charming, wonderfully creepy and rich with mystery. The Companion is a rare treat.‘ CL Taylor, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Escape
Billy Shaw lives in a palace. Potter’s Pleasure Palace, the best entertainment venue in Yorkshire, complete with dancing, swing-boats and a roller-skating rink.
When it is arranged for him to become companion to the child at the big house above the valley, Billy leaves home to find a wild, peculiar boy in a curiously haphazard household where nothing that’s meant is said and the air is thick with secrets. Before long, tragedy strikes and facts become entangled with fictions. It’s left to Anna Sallis, almost a century later, to unravel the knots and find the truth.
‘An absorbing mystery story, really evocative of the Yorkshire Moors and the mill. I loved the character of Billy Shaw! The story kept me engrossed and flipping the pages right to the end‘ Katherine Webb, bestselling author of The Legacy
‘The Companion is beautifully written and so evocative of time and place…If you thought the Brontes were the most intriguing literary family in Yorkshire, wait until you meet the Harpers‘ Linda Green, author of the No.1 bestseller, While My Eyes Were Closed
‘Sarah writes with warmth, wit and wisdom AND she makes you want to turn the page. A rare combination‘ John Humphrys
