The Cure For Death By Lightning Summary


The Cure For Death By Lightning by Gail Anderson-Dargatz

The remote Turtle Valley in British Columbia is home to fifteen-year-old Beth Weeks and a community of eccentric but familiar characters. There, amidst a stunning landscape of purple swallows and green skies, strange and unsettling events occur: children go missing, a girl is mauled by a crazy bear and Beth too is being pursued...

The Cure for Death by Lightning is a rich and thrilling novel, as filled with strange deeds and dark fears as with beauty and magic.

The Cure For Death By Lightning Reviews


An endearing coming-of-age first novel...remarkably tasty * FAY WELDON, MAIL ON SUNDAY *
I loved it from the first page, she's fluent and graceful and there's passion and tension, in fact all I want from a novel. The writing is so powerful and yet shows a restraint that tightens the whole atmosphere. An excellent read - I was gripped * MARGARET FORSTER *
Some novelists tiptoe. Not Gail Anderson-Dargatz. She makes her debut in full stride, breaking all the rules * BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE *
An alluring mix of the domestic and the darkly magical...skilled and subtle...storytelling verve, gorgeous descriptive evocations, passages of quiet lyricism, high suspense and hints of the supernatural * SCOTSMAN *
