Summary

A compelling, thought-provoking novel by bestselling author Emily Hourican about the power of one summer to change -- and maybe even ruin -- everything

The Blamed Summary

The Blamed by Emily Hourican

'Insightful and astute writing ... Emily Hourican has a wonderful understanding of human nature' Louise O'Neill

The summer she turned twenty-five, Anna felt invincible.

In love for the first time, in a strange city far from home, she could be a new person. All that she had ever wanted was there for the taking. But the glorious possibility of those long sultry days ended in a reality far starker than she could have imagined.

Now, fifteen years later, Anna is struggling to get through to her teenage daughter Jessie -- named in memory of Anna's best friend -- who has developed an eating disorder. Mother and daughter were once close, but now Anna feels as if Jessie's every word and action is a mystery. Though sometimes she wonders if Jessie can see right through her.

And when her daughter starts to report dreams about the namesake she never met, Anna -- increasingly unnerved by just how much her daughter seems to know -- is forced to face the secrets of that summer when her life changed in one unravelling moment, and the brutal truth about the part she had to play.

The Blamed Reviews

Part psychological thriller, part literary family drama, part sun-soaked nostalgic noir and a must-read * Sunday Independent *
Skilful, evocative and moving ... This is one of those books that stays with you after you've read it * Sinead Moriarty *
