"...Part Shirley Jackson's stories of inner demons, part Alice's Adventures in Wonderland... part Astrid Lindgren's faith in children's resilience and part ghost story."

"Enter a mysterious world in the hands of capable women. Getting drawn into this story is easy; getting out again is trickier." -BookPage

1901. After the death of Queen Victoria, England heaves with the uncanny. Séances are held and the dead are called upon from darker realms.

Helena Walton-Cisneros, known for her ability to find the lost and the displaced, is hired by the elusive Lady Matthews to solve a twenty-year-old mystery: the disappearance of her three stepdaughters who vanished without a trace on the Norfolk Fens.

But the Fens are an age-old land, where folk tales and dark magic still linger. The locals speak of devilmen and catatonic children are found on the Broads. Here, Helena finds what she was sent for, as the Fenland always gives up its secrets, in the end...


"A beguiling mystery that lingers long after reading, much like the unsettling mists of the fens that creep through this story. The Golden Key mesmerizes, offers a door to another world - one which casts an uncanny light on our own self-destruction." - Katherine Stansfield, author of Falling Creatures

"An intriguing and unsettling tale of séances, strange lights, disappearing children and a poacher who swears he has seen the devil in the marshes... Womack brings a great sense of the uncanny to the Fens." -- Alison Littlewood, author of A Cold Season

"With hints of the brooding Gothic of Rawblood and Rebecca, this wonderfully creepy historical novel makes it absolutely clear that Marian Womack is a rising star." --Tim Major, author of Snakeskins

"A fey, unsettling vision of Norfolk, and London, that fans of The Essex Serpent will love. A compelling mystery in which everyone has hidden facets, this book gives up its secrets like a puzzle box." -- G.V. Anderson, BFS award-winner of Down Where Sound Comes Blunt.

"A fascinating, unsettling tale that shifts, mutates and changes meaning much like the eerie ruined house in the fens at the centre of this weird and brilliant debut novel." --Lisa Tuttle, author of The Witch at Wayside Cross


Praise for Lost Objects


"Intriguing and illuminating... chockfull of interesting ideas about the natural world and ourselves." --Jeff VanderMeer

"Marian Womack weaves together the lyricism of Angela Carter, the mad imagination of China Miéville, and the earthiness of Robert Macfarlane. This book an aviary of the strange, a vital evocation of wild and fleeting spirits marks the emergence of a fantastic new talent." --Helen Marshall

"Marian Womack is an artist with a unique and powerfully-wrought vision." --Una MacCormack

"Luminous and disturbing as the unearthly things they describe, Marian Womack s gorgeously written tales map the shifting boundaries between waking life and dream, past and future and our own profoundly unsettled present. Reading them left me with goosebumps, and the craving for more stories by this supremely gifted new writer." --Elizabeth Hand
