When Alicia Bryson returns to her estranged father’s home in a tiny Yorkshire village, she feels burdened by his illness. Her hometown brings back memories of a miserable and violent childhood, and Alicia worries that her young daughter Jenny’s summer will be filled with a similar sense of unhappiness. The town is exactly as she remembered it - the people, the buildings, even the woods. But her arrival has not gone unnoticed.
There is someone watching her every move. Someone who has a plan of his own. Someone who will not stop until the people he loves most can rest together in paradise.
"An emotionally intelligent thriller - a little gem of a book." (International best-selling author Caro Ramsay)
"Menace crackles through the prose in Linda Huber's disturbing thriller The Paradise Trees." (We Love This Book)
"I was gripped by the incredible writing style; the ability to keep the reader guessing and the love that the family share.... Huber deals with abuse in a realistic way. The victims feel the effects in everything they do and Huber does not shy away from this. Huber also confronts issues of dementia and nursing homes for the elderly. I am glad I read this book.... This book would no doubt provoke great debate within a reading group." (Newbooks Magazine)
