Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the critically acclaimed author of The Mysteries comes a haunting, lyrical, and provocative novel of a young womans coming-of-age betwixt dream and reality. Here theres only one thing more dangerous than desire—getting what you want....

As a child, Agnes Grey dreamed of the perfect friend to ease her loneliness: a doll that would talk to her, tell her stories, share her secrets. Only her aunt Marjorie seemed to really understand. Something of an outcast herself, she told Agnes shed had just such a doll when she was a child. She called it her pillow friend. So when Agnes receives her very own pillow friend—an old-fashioned porcelain doll painted to look like an old-world gentleman—shes certain her dreams have come true. And so they have—but in ways that Agnes could never have imagined. For as the line between fantasy and reality blurs, Agnes discovers that every dream has its price and every desire must be paid for. Be very careful what you wish for...hell surely give it to you.

Synopsis:

Agnes Grey is troubled by her mother's depressive and erratic mood-swings, so the young girl retreats into a delusional dream state where she finds that made-up relationships are more gratifying and often more tangible than her real ones. As Agnes enters adulthood, her fantastical relationships and their consequences become deceivingly real, with a chilling and bizarre aftermath.
