"Kissing Alice" is the darkly intimate story of a family in which the ties of love and hate, fear and jealousy, innocence and experience, have all become dangerously confused...A remarkable first novel of family, love and loss, set against the unfolding of twentieth-century English life, an entirely haunting debut. Arthur Craythorne has barely married Queenie May when he is called away to fight in the First World War; when he returns from the trenches, he is a changed man. He struggles to contain the violent flashes of anger he confuses with love; and his two young daughters, Florrie and Alice, strive hard to please the stranger who calls himself their father. Finally, many years' later, when long-buried family secrets slowly resurface, no-one is quite prepared to face the truth.
