    Title: Tess
    Author: MCDOUGALL KIRSTEN

    In the silence she could hear the oncoming hum, like a large flock approaching. She didn’t want to hear his story; she’d had enough of them.

    Tess is on the run when she’s picked up from the side of the road by lonely middle-aged father Lewis Rose. With reluctance, she’s drawn into his family troubles and comes to know a life she never had.

    Set in Masterton at the turn of the millennium, Tess is a gothic love story about the ties that bind and tear a family apart.

    Kirsten McDougall’s first book, a series of interconnected short stories, The Invisible Rider, was published by VUP in 2012.
