'A jaw dropping last line twist' Lisa Jewell, #1 bestselling author of The Family Upstairs

'Impossible to put down' Independent


Sadie loves her daughter and will do anything to keep her safe.

She can't tell her why they had to leave home so quickly - or why Robin's father won't be coming with them to London.

She can't tell her why she hates being back in her dead mother's house, with its ivy-covered walls and its poisonous memories.

And she can't tell her the truth about the school Robin's set to start at - a school that doesn't welcome newcomers.

Sadie just wants to get their lives back on track.

But even lies with the best intentions can have deadly consequences...

With The Lies You Told, Harriet Tyce proves the success of Blood Orange was no one-off. An extremely well-written and unsettling novel, it tells the story of Sadie and her daughter Robin, and their struggles to establish themselves in the law courts and schoolyard respectively.
