Sleep, Pale Sister by Joanne Harris
Book Description"Sleep, Pale Sister", a powerful, atmospheric and blackly gothic evocation of Victorian artistic life, was originally published before Joanne Harris achieved worldwide recognition with "Chocolat". Henry Chester, a domineering and puritanical Victorian artist, is in search of the perfect model. In nine-year-old Effie he finds her. Ten years later, lovely, childlike and sedated, Effie seems the ideal wife. But something inside her is about to awaken. Drawn into a dangerous underworld of prostitution, murder and blackmail, she must finally plan her revenge.

UK Kirkus Review » From the author of Chocolat comes the reissue of an earlier novel - a deliciously gothic tale of domination and revenge from the 19th century. Henry Paul Chester is a puritanical artist and possessor of a deadly secret which reveals itself in everything he does. Chester is obsessed with painting 'innocent' girls, which leads him to nine-year-old Effie whom he sees in the park. Effie grows up and marries Chester, the man who has brought her fame. But this is not a match made in heaven and before long Effie is driven to strike out at her husband and mentor. Rich in drama, this is a superb piece of story-telling. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Joanne Harris
Joanne Harris is one of our best-loved and most versatile novelists. She first appeared on the scene with the bestselling Chocolat (made into an Oscar-nominated film with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp), which turned into the sensuous Lansquenet trilogy (with Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Cure). She has since written acclaimed novels in such diverse genres as fantasy based on Norse myth (Runemarks, Runelight, The Gospel of Loki), and the Malbry cycle of dark psychological thrillers (Gentlemen & Players, Blueeyedboy, and now Different Class). Born in Barnsley, of an English father and a French mother, she spent fifteen years as a teacher before (somewhat reluctantly) becoming a full-time writer. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE. She lives in Yorkshire, plays bass in a band first formed when she was sixteen, works in a shed in her garden, spends far too much time online and occasionally dreams of faking her own death and going to live in Hawaii.
