Duration: 7 hours 38 minutes

Summary:

In this atmospheric and profoundly moving debut, Cathy and Daniel live with their father, John, in the remote woods of Yorkshire, in a house the three of them built themselves. John is a gentle brute of a man, a former enforcer who fights for money when he has to, but who otherwise just wants to be left alone to raise his children. When a local landowner shows up on their doorstep, their precarious existence is threatened, and a series of actions is set in motion that can only end in violence. Steeped in the natural world of northern England, this is a lyrical commentary on the bonds of siblings and fatherhood, and on the meaning of community in the modern world. Elmet marks the launch of a major new voice in literary fiction.

Genres:

  • Jon E.

    Great dramatic story of a family living apart from the world but unable to escape it when it intrudes in their lives. Part class conflict, part mystery and part the unpacking of a complicated family and its place in the English landscape of copses and folk lore ... An EXCELLENT reading adds to this sometimes mesmerizing and lush story. One of those books that makes you want to drive, or sit in the driveway and listen.
