Lullaby Girl

INTRODUCTORY OFFER PRICE RED MAGAZINE's BEST NEW AUTHORS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NOW 'It's no secret that psychological thrillers have been the big hitters of the literary world in recent years (remember Gone Girl anyone?). Well this debut from Aly Sigdwick is set to do the same.' Who is the Lullaby Girl? Found washed up on the banks of a remote loch, a mysterious girl is taken into the care of a psychiatric home in the Highlands of Scotland. Mute and covered in bruises, she has no memory of who she is or how she got there. The only clue to her identity is the Danish lullaby she sings… Inside the care home, she should be safe. But, harassed by the media and treated as a nuisance by under-pressure staff, she finds the home is far from a haven. And as her memories slowly surface, the Lullaby Girl does her best to submerge them again. Some things are too terrible to remember… but unless she confronts her fear, how can she find out who she really is? Taut, tense and mesmerizing, Lullaby Girl is a shining debut from an exciting and very talented new author. Praise for Lullaby Girl : 'Her work had beautiful textures, and big portions of darkness and humour, with equal parts of a sadness to them… seeing her drawings and tattoos i was not at all surprised that she wrote a novel, or that it was a good one. There is a great sense of tension, and of coldness in the story, but Sidgwick has a keen eye for detail and a dark sense of humour that shines through, making the dark and the cold easier to pass through. And to make the dark passages of the mind bearable is an achievement indeed.' KOLBEINN KARLSSON, author of The Troll King .
