A compelling novel of three women and their dark secrets from the award-winning author of The Yellow House.

Three women. Three secrets. One weekend.


Alison is an actress who no longer acts, Patrick a musician past his prime. The eccentric couple live an isolated, debauched existence in an old manor house in Scotland, a few miles outside their village. That is, until Patrick's teenage daughter, Neve, flees Australia to spend a year abroad with her doting, if unreliable, father, and the stepmother she barely knows.

On the weekend of Neve's eighteenth birthday, her father insists on a special feast to mark her coming of age. Despite Neve's objections, her mother Shannon arrives in Scotland to join the celebrations. What none of them know is that Shannon has arrived with a hidden agenda that has the potential to shatter the delicate façade of the loving, if dysfunctional, family.

Feast is the story of three women connected beyond blood, and what happens when their darkest secrets are hauled into the light.

'Complicated and unsettling, nothing is as it seems. Filled with exquisitely drawn characters and powerful storytelling, Feast is a superb read. You will not want to put this book down.' Mirandi Riwoe, author of Stone Sky Gold Mountain
