Riassunto:

Set among the hills and gorges of southern France, Trespass is a thrilling novel about disputed territory, sibling love and devastating revenge, by the bestselling author of The Road Home, winner of the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction.

In a silent valley stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Its owner is Aramon Lunel, an alcoholic so haunted by his violent past that he's become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin. Meanwhile, his sister, Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life.

Into this closed Cévenol world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. Now in his sixties, Anthony hopes to remake his life in France, and he begins looking at properties in the region. From the moment he arrives at the Mas Lunel, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion.

Two worlds and two cultures collide. Ancient boundaries are crossed, taboos are broken, a violent crime is committed. And all the time the Cévennes hills remain, as cruel and seductive as ever, unforgettably captured in this powerful and unsettling novel, which reveals yet another dimension to Rose Tremain's extraordinary imagination.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Trespass:

“This is a terrific book: accomplished in its poised, imaginative storytelling and in its vivid, sensual rendering of landscape and character, emotion, and memory.”―The Times

“[Tremain] knows how to stretch a good yarn, and this one . . . has an effortless ease to it.”―Financial Times

“The story Tremain weaves between her pair of siblings is taut and full of suspense. . . . Trespass evinces a steely grip on corrupt human nature.”―The Guardian

“A thoroughly engrossing psychological thriller. . . . Tremain’s writing is both vivid and wonderfully compressed, the eye that is cast over proceedings unblinking. . . . From an apparent idyll, Tremain has summoned a spirit of profound disquiet and, as with all her best writing, revealed the anguish that can lie just below the surface of everyday lives.”―The Independent

“As perfect a thriller and a novel as one can find in contemporary fiction, this is not only a gripping read but a thoughtful examination of human moral error.”―City A.M.

“The book feels timeless but rooted, tangible but otherworldly. Meticulously plotted, with the must sadness that comes of cleaving to the past, Trespass will reward your reading . . . and have you questioning if blood is thicker than water after all.”―Scotland on Sunday
