She desperately wants to explain what happened that stormy night on the cliffs by Clarence Batterie. But the adults around her - her mother, her teachers, even the Chief Constable - understand that some things are best kept hidden.

Over a period of two weeks, scribbling frantically in her journal, Catherine recounts the events that led to Nicolettes death, only to discover that history has been repeating itself. Fifty years earlier, another Rozier stands on the same cliff-edge. Charlie, a teenager during the German Occupation of the island, is witness to soldiers moving into homes, imposing curfews and even taking over his fathers printing press.

Frustrated by the adults around him, and their lack of resistance to the occupying forces, Charlie sets on a path that will destroy an important friendship and change the Rozier familys life forever. Exploring the conflicts and trials of growing up, and the repressed histories we all harbour, The Book of Lies is an unforgettable novel about a truly astonishing period of history.

It challenges the idea that by looking into the past we can make sense of the future, and takes us on a journey with two captivating characters that the reader will not forget.
