The Wilding

by Maria McCann

With sheer persistence and utter naivety, Jonathan a 17th century travelling cider presser, fervently sets out to unravel a cruel web of family deceit. This gothic novel is a true page turner, as layer upon layer of secrets and lies, twist and turn in every direction.

Once he was gone I did not bother with the horse but turned the mill myself - turned it until I felt the sweat on my back - stopping only to scrape down the pulped apples. I craved exhaustion: it seemed only right that I should be going in circles since I had discovered precisely nothing, except that my aunt had noble antecedents and her maid was half a vagrant.
