This month, we will be discussing The Secret Skin by Wendy N. Wagner:
The Secret Skin by Wendy N. Wagner is a sawmill gothic that begins with June Vogel’s return to Storm Break, her family’s estate. Things in the great house aren’t what they used to be. Doors slam in the night. Faucets turn on, untouched. Something is always watching, whatever June does. And when her brother returns with his new bride, deceit and betrayal threaten to destroy everything she loves.
Blends the vivid DNA of Rebecca and Jane Eyre with a glorious, muscular queer magnificence that is all Wendy’s own. Sexy, scary, compelling, incredible.
–Sam J. Miller, Nebula Award-winning author of Blackfish City
A deeply compelling tale of family, secrets, betrayal and love at all costs. The Secret Skin caught me in its gothic spell, and kept me turning pages into the witching hours.
–Nebula Award-winning author Kelly Robson
A beautifully written piece of gothic horror, suffused with all the peculiarities of the 1920s in coastal Oregon. Pitch perfect language combines with the brilliant decision to make our narrator both the governess and the inheritor of the manor, a masterful twist on genre tropes.
–Caitlin Starling, author of The Death of Jane Lawrence
