Doesn't every marriage have a dark side?

'Beautifully written, chilling and absorbing' Adele Parks, Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of Lies Lies Lies and Just My Luck

'Her best novel yet Twisty, malevolent and gripping' Lisa Jewell, No. 1 bestselling author of The Family Upstairs

To the outside world Hannah married the perfect man. Behind the closed doors of their imposing home it's a very different story. Nathan controls everything Hannah does. He chooses her clothes, checks her receipts, and keeps her passport locked away. But why does she let him?

Years before, in the midst of a relentless storm, the tragic events of one night changed everything. And Hannah has been living with the consequences ever since. Keeping Nathan happy. Doing as she's told.

But the past is about to catch up with them.

Set against the unforgiving backdrop of a Cornish fishing port in the '90s, this is a devastating exploration of the power of coercive control in a marriage where nothing is quite as it seems

Here's what you say about us...

Amanda Jennings lives in Oxfordshire with her husband, three daughters, and a menagerie of animals. She studied History of Art at Cambridge and before writing her first book, was a researcher at the BBC. With a deep fascination for the far-reaching effects of trauma, her books focus on the different ways people find to cope with loss, as well as the moral struggles her protagonists face. When she isn't writing she can usually be found walking the dog. Her favourite place to be is up a mountain or beside the sea.

Praise for The Storm:

'Amanda Jennings is a writer on the ascendant and The Storm is her best novel yet. This twisty, malevolent and gripping story of a controlling husband and his oddly compliant wife was virtually impossible to put down. The dark and craggy Cornwall backdrop is exquisitely drawn and the sense of foreboding that runs through the whole novel is masterfully done' Lisa Jewell
