The Secret of my Face

Karen Ardiff

Karen Ardiff's début novel is a dark, haunting, yet beautiful tale of love and tragedy. 14-year-old Veronica Broderick has lived a life of quiet internal solitude, her existence shaped by a facial disfigurement that has rendered her effectively mute. After a visit from the young Dr Geraghty, she becomes enchanted by the possibility of change, running away from home to a new life with her wealthy relatives in Dublin where she appears to blossom. But Veronica's naïveté renders her vulnerable in this sophisticated milieu and she starts playing a dangerous game...
