We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Paperback)

Shirley Jackson


After a fatal dose of arsenic in a sugar bowl wiped out many of the Blackwood family, sisters Merricat and Constance have been happily living in isolation with their uncle Julian in the family estate. Many villagers believe Constance is to blame for her relative's deaths, despite her being acquitted of the murders, meaning Merricat has to protect her from the curiousity and hostility of the rest of the village. Soon, their cousin Charles appears, determined to woo Constance, but Merricat does not trust him and can see the danger he brings. She must act swiftly to keep Constance from his grasp. We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a classic dark tale of family loyalty from Shirley Jackson.
