The Weight of Loss

Published by Oneworld Publications
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

A visit to a health retreat takes a horrifyingly dark twist...

Marianne is grieving. Still reeling from the loss of her sister, she wakes up one day to discover a thick, black hair protruding from her spine. Her doctor assures her that the inexplicable growth is a physical reaction to grief. Forced to admit that she isn’t coping, Marianne accepts the offer of a quiet recovery at Nede, a remote health retreat in the Welsh countryside.

But all is not as it seems at Nede, and Marianne feels herself starting to lose control: of her body, her mind, and her memories... Why are her fellow patients so unwilling to talk? Can she trust the staff who claim to be so keen to help her?

The escape she has craved for so long might finally be possible. But it will come at a terrible price...

Exhilaratingly dark and hauntingly beautiful, The Weight of Loss is a spine-tingling debut about grief and obsession, with a shocking twist of an ending that will leave your heart pounding...
