'Parkin is a wonderful writer with a painterly eye for detail - lush gardens, lashing seas - and a way of slowly releasing key facts... There are some brilliant twists.' ?-Wendy Holden, Daily MailWhen Jen goes to her grandmother's house for the last time, she's determined not to dwell on the past. As a child, Jen adored Lily and suspected she might be a witch; but the spell was broken long ago, and now her death means there won't be any reconciliation.Lily's gone, but the enchantments she wove and the secrets she kept still remain. In Lily's house, Jen and her daughter Marianne reluctantly confront the secrets of the past and present - and discover how dangerous we become when we're trying to protect the ones we love.What Reviewers and Readers Say:Lily's House has a voice that leaps out of the page and holds you tight.
