I am delighted to be able to share the exciting new cover for Abby Davies’ latest book Arrietty today on behalf of Random Things Tours.
Firstly, let’s talk about the actual book:
Arrietty wakes one morning to find her mother gone. Turning to her father for reassurance, she gets the terrifying sense that he – and others – are hiding a crime too dreadful to name.
Confined to the house on the cliff, Arrietty worries for the safety of her brother as her father becomes increasingly unstable and unpredictable.
Arrietty’s hunt for answers plunges her into a nightmarish fight for survival that leads her to the most awful secret of all.
Book Info: Approx 360 pages. Publisher: Apple Loft Press. Publication Date: 18 July 2023
