Susie's New Novel

'written with deep psychological insight and coal black humour The Small Hours is a powerful novel about families and secrets and the best and the worst of how we treat each other’


Harriet Mansfield, brave, wry and handsome, is determined to triumph no matter what. With a decade of therapy under her belt and a new large inheritance, it seems there is nothing she cannot achieve. When she finds herself in charge of a school full of precocious little girls, rich in everything but care, she vows to make their childhoods amongst the happiest ever spent.
