Enbury Heath



Gibbons' semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story about three siblings living in a Hampstead Heath cottage

'Hartley Garden had been a bad man but a good doctor'

Sophia, Harry and Francis have lost both their parents in the last six months. Attending the funeral for their estranged father, they wonder what will become of them now that the last connection to their difficult childhood has been severed. What have the siblings inherited - financially and emotionally - to guide them to adulthood, and build a new home together?

Enbury Heath is a semi-autobiographical account of the years which Gibbons and her brothers spent living in a cottage in Hampstead Heath: a wonderfully astute, bittersweet novel about family, grief, money, and the pleasures of London.
