The Summer We All Ran Away

'The story is fresh and original, written vividly and with flair. I was completely engrossed!' --Katherine Webb, international best-selling author

'Beautiful… A fascinating tale of the meeting of lost souls. Of danger, and trust and self-worth. Read it.' --Jen Campbell, author of Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops

'A stunning debut… The storyline is original, the characters are fascinating, and over all this is simply a great read.' --The Bookbag

'The characters grabbed my heart, the story pulled me in and I sailed through the pages… Put Cassandra Parkin's debut novel on your To-Read list.' --Women's World

When nineteen-year-old Davey finds himself drunk, beaten and alone, he is rescued by the oddly assorted inhabitants of an abandoned and beautiful house in the West Country. Their only condition for letting him join them is that he asks them no questions.

More than thirty years ago in that same house, burned-out rock star Jack Laker writes a ground-breaking comeback album, and abandons the girl who saved his life to embark on a doomed and passionate romance with a young actress. His attempt to escape his destructive lifestyle leads to deceit, debauchery and even murder.

As Davey and his fellow housemate Priss try to uncover the secrets of the house's inhabitants, both past and present, it becomes clear that the five strangers have all been drawn there by the events and the music of that long-ago summer.

    It won’t be easy, but so what? I love him and I’m happy. What else matters?”
    “You look happy,” Diane admitted. “God, you even look like you belong. I feel like a complete freak! Literally everyone else here is famous. Everyone! I can see them looking at me and trying to work out who I am. How did you know who to invite?”
    “Oh, I asked his manager. He said it was a good idea. Well, actually first of all he said he didn’t care if Jack was rotting away in a ditch. But I told him there was a new album, and then he said it was a good idea.”
    “That’s hobnobbing,” said Diane. “My best friend is hobnobbing with music industry moguls. Crazy.” She picked up Evie’s left hand and played idly with her ring finger. “Any chance of...”
    Evie laughed. “It’s still early days.”
    “I bet he’s a handful to live with.”
    “No, actually he’s great. Anyway, he’s working a lot of the time.”

    “Running away’s bloody hard, you know. You might think it solves everything, but it mostly makes it worse.”

    “Kill me?”
