Summary

Janet grew up with her father; her mother, she was always told, died when she was three. But now, she unexpectedly inherits a house from her mother, who in fact lived long into Janet’s adulthood in an old stone cottage at the sea’s edge. Tom was raised by his mother, travelling from one place to another, his only stability the stories she told him – of shapeshifters, danger, impossible love. Now he hides away in an old stone cottage at the sea’s edge, waiting for a woman he knows will come. Here is a world where lives and stories become so interwoven that in the end, all distinctions are lost. Written in searing and original prose, Seizure is an intense love story between two people terrified and trapped by the past.
