Nuala Ellwood is the daughter of an award-winning journalist. She was inspired by his experiences and those of foreign correspondents such as Marie Colvin and Martha Gellhorn to secure Arts Council funding for her research into PTSD for her debut psychological thriller MY SISTER’S BONES.
My Sister’s Bones tells the story of Kate Rafter, a troubled war reporter who has just been through a harrowing ordeal in Syria. When her mother dies Kate returns to her childhood home, a place her estranged sister has never left, and becomes convinced there is a crime being committed in the house next door. As Kate struggles with the horrors of her past we are led to question the validity of her claims and ask if what we are seeing is but a strange trick of the eye.
