A stunning, rich novel of suspense from one of Ireland’s most distinguished writers.
In Felicia’s Journey, Trevor gently explores the intricate relationship between a predator and his intended victim.
Felicia is young and pregnant, having stolen away from a small Irish town to search for her boyfriend in the industrial sprawl of the English Midlands. Fat, 50ish, and unfailingly reasonable, Mr. Hilditch is looking for a new friend to join the five other girls he has “befriended”. Under Trevor’s master hand, both characters become startlingly sympathetic in their tragic dance from which only one of them will emerge victorious—and alive.
