Thanks so much to all the wonderful people at Plume (especially to Tara and Pam)! ‘The House at Tyneford’ has just debuted at no 29 on the NYT bestseller list. I’m so, so excited. It’s also at no 14 on the Indiebound list and at no 8 in the Boston Globe besteller list. It’s bedtime but I’m far too excited to sleep.
Here is a photo of a windswept Dorset seascape near Tyneham… no wonder I was inspired to write a novel set here.
And here is a picture of the real-life Landau girls, taken in Berlin in the 1920s.
My grandmother Margot is the eldest.
