Five years ago, Susannah Harper’s son Joel went missing without trace. Bereft of her son and then of her husband, Susannah has rebuilt her life around a selfless mission: to prevent others from falling victim, just as she did, to the mediums and psychics who prey on the vulnerable and bereaved.

But then, on the last night of Hull Fair, a fortune-teller makes an eerie prediction. She tells her that this Christmas Eve, Joel will finally come back to her. As her carefully-constructed life begins to unravel, Susannah becomes obsessed with finding out for herself what really happened to her son, no matter the cost.

Cassandra Parkin grew up in Hull, and now lives in East Yorkshire. Her short story collection, New World Fairy Tales (Salt Publishing, 2011), won the 2011 Scott Prize for Short Stories. THE WINTER’S CHILD is her fourth novel.
