The Great North Road Summary


The Great North Road by Annabel Dore

Newcastle, 1953. Two new mothers make a pact that will resonate for generations to come. Together Greta and Sylvia decide to flee their old lives, and abandon their newborn babies. Eventually, though, teenager Sylvia is drawn back to her estranged family - to her daughter and the boy she still loves. But then her baby vanishes, and a whole cast of characters, including Greta, comes under suspicion.

The Great North Road is an epic literary voyage through the storied landscapes of northern England, through tragedy and comedy, to the darker reaches of human behaviour. Compassionate and unfailingly dramatic, it is a searing and addictive debut novel.

`A gothic, surreal melodrama . . . perceptive and affectionate' Ann Cleeves



'An absolute treat to read. I haven't been so captivated by a writer's voice since I read Kate Atkinson's Behind the Scenes at the Museum. Annabel Dore's going straight onto my list of favourite authors' Kate Long, author of The Bad Mother's Handbook
