The Stranger




Reminiscent of Atonement and Sadie Jones's The Uninvited Guests, Riordan tells a devastating story of a house of secrets where everyone is guilty of something.

1940, Cornwall, England.

Penhallow Hall shelters a handful of Land Girls, sent to the coast to avoid the horrors of London's Blitz. But the beautiful, arrogant Diana Devlin, impatient with the sleepy village and its placid residents, can't resist the temptation to stir up long-buried secrets.

When a young woman's body is found lying broken on the shore, the promised safety of the Hall is shattered. Was it simply a tragic accident, or did mischief end in murder?
