The Great Harlequin Grim

Samsom Ashburner always felt different – even before the farm accident that left his face scarred and confidence shattered. With the taunts of local children and his mother’s criticism ringing in his ears, Samson escapes to the Cumbrian countryside, away from the demands of his parents’ failing pub and the plans of a new ambitious landowner. Samson’s refuge is an ancient charcoal-burning hut in the nearby woods. There he encounters Angel Obscura, a beautiful gypsy girl who helps him see that hiding away is not the only option. But Angel may be concealing scars of her own, and Samson finds himself drawn into a web of deceit with an explosive outcome.
