Sarah Court. Meet the resident.

The haunted father of a washed-up stuntman. A disgraced surgeon and his son, a broken-down boxer. A father set on permanent self-destruct, and his daughter, a reluctant powerlifter. A fireworks-maker and his daughter. A very peculiar boy and his equally peculiar adopted family.

Five houses. Five families. One block.

Ask yourself: How well do you know your neighbours? How well do you know your own family? Ultimately, how well do you know yourself? How deeply do the threads of your own life entwine with those around you? Do you ever really know how tightly those threads are knotted? Do you want to know?

I know, and can show you. Please, let me show you.

Welcome to Sarah Court: make yourself at home.

Review: Sarah Court

User Review  - Justine - Goodreads

I really wanted to like this book. I didn't like that the writing style changed in every chapter. Maybe I just don't "get" the writing style, but this book was difficult to follow. The story was okay, not great. Read full review

User Review  - Ann Douglas - Goodreads

Intriguing and disturbing. Well-written and intricately woven so that all of the subplots come together beautifully in the end. Read full review
