An extraordinary, unsettling and gripping debut - a story in two strands, one in pictures and one in words. Two girls separated by 30 years are pulled together by a place, Thornhill, a large old house surrounded by gardens, wire fences and 'keep out' signs. 'Pam Smy has created a wonderful piece of work in "Thornhill". The drawings are full of atmosphere, the words are full of tension and emotion... I think it's terrific' Philip Pullman
Pam Smys debut is a masterpiece. Forget what youthink a novel should be and what it should look like.Thornhill is a story in two strands, one in pictures andone in words - working together as a whole.
