Carmen Marcus’ moving debut novel, How Saints Die, is published today (13 July) by Harvill Secker, and we’re giving one lucky winner the chance to win a hardback copy of the book.

Ten years old and irrepressibly curious, Ellie lives with her fisherman father, Peter, on the wild North Yorkshire coast. It’s the 1980s and her mother’s breakdown is discussed only in whispers, with the promise ‘better by Christmas’ and no further explanation.

Steering by the light of her dad’s sea-myths, her mum’s memories of home across the water, and a fierce spirit all her own, Ellie begins to learn – in these sudden, strange circumstances – who she is and what she can become. By the time the first snowdrops show, her innocence has been shed, but at great cost.

Enter below for a chance to win a copy of How Saints Die:
