Perfectly plotted, beautifully written modern gothic. Timeless, tense and tender, Fragile will worm its way deep into your heart, just as the characters insinuate themselves into each others’ lives. I absolutely loved it.
Fragile is a dark kind of modern fairytale, Cinderella reimagined by a writer who knows how to turn a phrase until it’s sharp enough to cut. With echoes of du Maurier and Highsmith, Fragile is compelling, poetic and, at times, terrifying.
Sarah Hilary’s first standalone is everything you’d expect from such a gifted writer. It’s beautifully crafted, smart and unsettling – a dark river of a book, with a chilling undertow.
In Fragile, Sarah Hilary has created a beautifully written modern gothic masterpiece, so full of intrigue, and mysteries layered upon mysteries that the unravelling may well shred your nerves, in the best way possible.
