She will try it out. This place that has taken her the best part of a day to travel to. See how things lie in the spring. It is the only way to tackle her past, the root of her trouble. At least this is the theory…
Sarah D’Villez had famously escaped from a man who abducted her and kept her for eleven days. Her subsequent marriage went on to fall apart and her ability to create a life for herself in London falters. With the impending release of her kidnapper, and fearful of fresh media attention, Sarah impulsively moves to rural Wales and changes her identity. Back in the Welsh landscape of her childhood, Sarah begins to thrive and she tentatively makes new connections with the community around her.
Sarah’s immediate neighbours in Wales couldn’t be more different; Idris Tudor is a lonely and grotesque man who struggles to find companionship and Dai Jones is a kindly man mourning the death of his wife, which brings back memories of the first girl he ever loved – who disappeared at a fairground when they were sixteen.
Sarah’s mother, Jennifer D’Villez, lives a privileged life in Muswell Hill but her sole focus is finding her vanished daughter. There’s something she needs to tell her...
With the stunning back drop of the landscape of rural Wales, poetically and vividly depicted, and told with multiple points of view, Rebecca Griffiths cleverly builds up a story that weaves together unexpected strands. Deftly revealing surprising and powerful connections, the reader will realise that things are not always what they seem... THE PRIMROSE PATH is an intelligent and original debut from an exciting new voice.
