SARAH DUNNAkEY The Companion a beautifully-told story of buried secrets set between the 1930s and the present day on the wild yorkshire moors, reminiscent of The Thirteenth Tale and Possession.
1932: twelve-year-old billy Shaw leaves his home at Potter’s Pleasure Palace to become companion to the wild, untamed boy who lives in the big house at the top of the valley. For years the boys are inseparable, but when billy’s new guardians are found dead, ruled a double suicide, billy has already left for London and his time at High Hob is written out of history.
2015: sorting the chaotic archives of the local mill, formerly the Palace, Anna Sallis finds inconsistencies in the story of the suicide and becomes curious about what really happened. Why did billy leave? And what did he know about the events at High Hob?
sarah Dunnakey won a Northern Writer’s Award from New Writing North for The Companion. When she’s not writing fiction, Sarah writes and verifies questions and answers for a variety of Tv quiz shows including Mastermind, University Challenge and Pointless.
