Catherine Banner, The House at the Edge of Night

 

CATHERINE BANNER was born in Cambridge, UK and began writing at the age of 14. She has previously published a trilogy of young adult novels: The Eyes of a KingVoices in the Dark and The Heart at War. Catherine studied English at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, and is a school teacher in the UK. The House at the Edge of the Night is her first adult novel.

On the tiny, idyllic island of Castellamare, off the coast of Sicily, lies The House at the Edge of Night, an ancient bar run by the Esposito family. There, over the course of three generations–from the eve of World War One to the aftershocks of the 2008 financial crisis–the Esposito women will fight to hold their family together against the threats that break across their shores. As lush and magical as the island at its centre, The House at the Edge of Night is a story of love and secrets, endurance, loss and, ultimately, triumph.
