An electrifying novel about disputed territory, sibling love, and devastating revenge. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A well-executed, intense tale of dark family secrets coming to light in a sunny place.” Kirkus Reviews
“Ms. Tremain has implicated the reader in her potent little horror story, asking us all whether we truly own what we think is ours or whether we only trespass.” Wall Street Journal
“Tremain is as ambitious as her better known male compatriots. She seems ready to try any form, any style, even any worldview…Trespass will entice American readers to experience the riches and wisdom of Rose Tremain’s large and varied body of work. She is a maestro.” Washington Post
“[Tremain] turns to the mountains and villages of the Cévennes to bring us a different vision of cultural collision and the experience of the outsider… it is a successful novel, well made and written with a light touch.” Guardian (London)
