The Uninvited Guests

A sinister tale of haunting beauty, from The Outcast author Sadie Jones.
It is the eve of Emerald Torrington's twentieth birthday and the family has assembled at Sterne, the once grand, now crumbling, family seat. The cake is iced, the wine decanted, the house gleams invitingly.
But before the first dish can be served, a mysterious group of strangers arrives at the door. Victims of a local train accident they are seeking shelter at the house.
The Torringtons welcome them in but there is something unsettling about the group and, as night falls and a storm rages outside, the family begins to wonder if something more malevolent than stranded travellers is in their home...

Zitat
"Dazzlingly well-written. The style is exuberant and extremely funny. This is a midsummer's night dream of a book, mythic and unforgettable" Financial Times "What a delicious literary cocktail Sadie Jones's latest novel is: part suspense, part Edwardian romcom, richly evocative of time and place... It's a spiffing tale and, even though it is at bottom a metaphysical love story, it is far more believable than Downton Abbey" -- Sebastian Shakespeare Tatler "Highly entertaining. An elegant comedy of manners with the usual undercurrents of jealousy, desire and conflicting loyalties. Jones shows that she can turn her talent for storytelling to a more stylised form with a light and playful touch, and without compromising her sharp insights into the human heart" -- Stephanie Merritt Observer "Fans of The Outcast and Small Wars won't be disappointed. Wonderfully spooky and atmospheric" -- Viv Groskop Red "With its Mitfordesque dialogue and pacy plot, this is a deliciously fun read" -- Beatrice Hodgkin Easy Living
