Alnpete Press is pleased to announce Alison Buck's first novel
Buck is an exciting and strong new voice in modern fiction.
Although her stories feature powerful insights and express a
female perspective on important issues and concerns
they successfully speak to readers of all genders, ages and beliefs.
Dark, psychological drama, mixed with wit and delivered with a light touch
that makes you care about the hopes and dreams of her characters.
Elderly sisters Lizzie and May live quiet, ordered lives in the house in which they were born; their self-imposed seclusion and the unchanging predictability of their lives shielding them from the changing world beyond.
But the day comes when this protective isolation is broken; the world outside forces its way in. A stranger appears, unsettling them, bringing with him the threat of danger, upheaval and violence.
Fearful and alone, with all semblance of comforting routine wrenched from them, Lizzie and May are driven to desperation. Dark memories emerge from their buried past as the sisters gradually slip from reason into their own confused realities, within which even their former carefully regulated world seems only a distant memory.
Buck, an exciting and strong new voice in fiction.
