"Bloody brilliant." (Paula Hawkins, bestselling author of The Girl on the Train).
This is a new Statesman Book of the Year. Some memories are too powerful to live only in the past.
During a ferocious storm, a red-haired stranger appears in the garden of a small farming cottage.
Eliza and her parents take him in. But very soon, it's clear he has no intention of leaving.
A century later, Mary and Graham have experienced every parent's worst nightmare.
Now, escaping the memories and the headlines, they have found an idyllic new home in rural Suffolk.
A cottage, a beautiful garden. The perfect place to forget. To move on. But life doesn't always work that way. With a devastating depiction of profound loss, sexual longing, love and true evil, the Stopped Heart is the finest novel to date from this most fearless and original of writers.
