9780230528895: The Great North Road

Two babies abandoned at birth. Two extraordinary women, bound together and torn apart by a decision that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Greta Korda is fleeing her sadistic husband, Dick. Sylvia Sharp, no more than a child herself, is burdened by delusions that grow more shattering by the day. Eventually Sylvia’s love for her daughter Alice draws her back to her estranged family in Newcastle—to the boy she still loves and the world she left behind. But then Alice vanishes, and a whole cast of characters, including Greta, come under suspicion. Has the little girl been abducted, or has she met a much darker fate? The Great North Road takes us on an epic literary voyage through the storied landscapes of northern England, through tragedy and comedy, to the darker reaches of human behaviour. Gripping, compassionate, and unfailingly dramatic, it is a searing and addictive debut novel.
