  • This the house we have come to. This the house we have left to find. Beached up on the side of the North York Moors, only just out of the sea. Our lips puckered and wrinkled from licking crisp salt, limbs heavy, wrought with growing pains.

    The boiling-hot steering wheel, the glare off the road. It has been hours since we left, buried in the backseat. Mum said, getting into the car, Let's make it before night. And then nothing else for a long time. We imagine what she might say: This is your fault, or, We would never have had to leave if you hadn't done what you did.

    I squeeze my hands together. Not being able to tell yet what the fear is of, only that it is enormous. The house is here, squatting like a child by the small slate wall, the empty sheep field behind pitted with old excrement, thornbushes tall as a person. The suck of stale air meeting new as I push the door open.

Now she returns with Sisters, a haunting story about two sisters caught in a powerful emotional web and wrestling to understand where one ends and the other begins.

Reviews from readers

Sisters ends with a magnificent twist, one that will make readers want to start over from page one and see what was right in front of them the whole time.

Entrancing . . . Johnson's own writing summons the just-off-ness of the uncanny; she is capable of passages of exquisite creepiness. . . . Her sentences have an aqueous quality.

Dec 25, 2021

Transcends genres of horror and true crime . . . The creepiest thing I've read lately. . . . a thoroughly modern, highly disturbing shocker that is also beautifully written.

Jan 7, 2022

Daisy Johnson writes in a torrent of language as unrelenting and turbulent and dark as the river at the book's heart; dive in for just a moment and you'll emerge gasping and haunted.
