SARAH DUNNAKEY The Companion a beautiful and powerfully told story of buried secrets, set between the 1930s and the present day, on the wild yorkshire moors.
Billy Shaw lives in a palace. Potter’s Pleasure Palace, the best entertainment venue in Yorkshire, complete with dancing, swing-boats, picnickers and a roller-skating rink.
Jasper Harper lives in the big house above the valley with his eccentric mother Edie and Uncle Charles, famous authors enjoying the seclusion of the moors.
When it is arranged for Billy to become Jasper’s companion, Billy finds a wild, peculiar boy in a curious household where the air is thick with secrets. When Charles and Edie are found dead, it is ruled a double suicide, but fictions have become tangled in facts and it’s left to Anna Sallis, almost a century later, to piece together the truth.
sarah Dunnakey writes and verifies questions and answers for TV quiz shows including Mastermind and Pointless. In 2014, she won a Northern Writer’s Award from New Writing North after submitting part of The Companion.
