This dark fantasy tale from "a highly original talent" introduces the weird world of the Way family (Beryl Bainbridge). When Vanessa Way is a little girl, she is told not to go near Pike Lake. But the forbidden lake only becomes more alluring, as does the wood where time and light don't quite follow the rules. Her world is full of secrets-and she suspects her unconventional mother is hiding some secrets of her own. Lachlan Laidlaw is a student of the unexplained and the inconvenient. Some call it ghost hunting; most call it nonsense. But Lachlan knows there is something out there, lurking at the borders of things. He also knows that he belongs Elsewhere, away from his small town and beyond the stuffy halls of academia. Somewhere cold where the snow lies deep white. As Vanessa comes of age and leaves home, she and Lachlan will each head off in search of something more, both blissfully unaware of what that may be-of each other, and of the darkness their destinies hold.
