Overview

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize; one of the Wall Street Journal's best books by women in 2010. “Complex, suspenseful, and almost hypnotically readable.”—Margot Livesey, Boston Sunday Globe
In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Aramon, the owner, is so haunted by his violent past that he's become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin. Meanwhile, his sister Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. When he sets his sights on the Mas, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion.
"Rose Tremain's writing is so good, she makes us hear English anew," writes the San Francisco Chronicle. This powerful and unsettling work reveals yet another dimension to Tremain's extraordinary imagination.

Editorial Reviews

City A.M.
“As perfect a thriller and a novel as one can find in contemporary fiction, this is not only a gripping read but a thoughtful examination of human moral error.”
Financial Times
“[Tremain] knows how to stretch a good yarn, and this one . . . has an effortless ease to it.”
The Independent
“A thoroughly engrossing psychological thriller. . . . Tremain’s writing is both vivid and wonderfully compressed, the eye that is cast over proceedings unblinking. . . . From an apparent idyll, Tremain has summoned a spirit of profound disquiet and, as with all her best writing, revealed the anguish that can lie just below the surface of everyday lives.”
Washington Post
A gothic novel, dark and eerie. . . . Rose Tremain is a maestro.
-— Jane Smiley
Scotland on Sunday
“The book feels timeless but rooted, tangible but otherworldly. Meticulously plotted, with the must sadness that comes of cleaving to the past, Trespass will reward your reading . . . and have you questioning if blood is thicker than water after all.”
The Times [London]
“This is a terrific book: accomplished in its poised, imaginative storytelling and in its vivid, sensual rendering of landscape and character, emotion, and memory.”
Wall Street Journal
Explores, in an agreeably creepy way, notions about the stewardship of land both wild and cultivated . . . [a] potent little horror story.— Donna Rifkind
The Guardian
“The story Tremain weaves between her pair of siblings is taut and full of suspense. . . . Trespass evinces a steely grip on corrupt human nature.”
The New York Times Book Review
“Like Howards End, Trespass proves that the vagaries of real estate can make for dramatic fiction. . . . [Tremain] grabs her readers by their ankles and dangles them over the abyss. She spares us nothing and she never lets us go.”
Jane Smiley - Washington Post
“A gothic novel, dark and eerie. . . . Rose Tremain is a maestro.
-”
Donna Rifkind - Wall Street Journal
“Explores, in an agreeably creepy way, notions about the stewardship of land both wild and cultivated . . . [a] potent little horror story.”
