Description

Twenty years ago Helen Franklin did something she cannot forgive herself for, and she has spent every day since barricading herself against its memory. But her sheltered life is about to change.

A strange manuscript has come into her possession. It is filled with testimonies from the darkest chapters of human history, which all record sightings of a tall, silent woman in black, with unblinking eyes and bleeding feet: Melmoth, the loneliest being in the world. Condemned to walk the Earth forever, she tries to beguile the guilty and lure them away for a lifetime wandering alongside her.

Everyone that Melmoth seeks out must make a choice: to live with what they've done or be led into the darkness. Helen can't stop reading or shake the feeling that someone is watching her. As her past finally catches up with her, she too must choose which path to take.

Exquisitely written, and gripping until the very last minute, this is a masterpiece of moral complexity, asking us profound questions about mercy, redemption and how to make the best of our conflicted world.

Intriguing and spellbinding!

Everything about this book was perfect! Yes it's a bit dark, but not so much so that it is depressing. The story unfolds elegantly. it's narrated perfectly. Worth every minute!

who is Melmoth

a legend , a myth, real, fiction, dead, your conscience, a figment of your imagination? Or something else altogether? This book is a story of a woman's life told in fragmented flashbacks of seemingly unrelated threads. Finally towards the end a tapestry begins to form, not always beautiful, careworn, even ugly in part much like any life's tapestry but uniquely and wonderfully the story of Helen fo middle age.

Great read, well structured and creative.

I loved the flawed characters and was made to wait deliciously for the reason. Thoughtful and unexpected. Great ending.

I Love Sarah Perry and Emilia Fox

I loved every word of the Essex Serpent and Melmoth. Melmoth is a very different work, not for all readers i think. It's a brilliant book by a marvellous author. Hope to read more from Sarah Perry! Get the full experience with this Audiobook narrated by Emilia Fox! Every character is on point (Albina Horakova is so lovely!), it was a great experience to listen to this performance. The Jackdaws "why? why? how? why?"
