‘A novel of beauty, calm, sensuality,
anticipation, horror and nightmare …
The Girl in a Swing grips – brilliantly’
Karin,flesh and dancing spirit, sits in the swing,
exquisite as porcelain, secretly smiling …
Who is Karin, of no past, so vibrant,
so beautiful? And what is to become of
Alan Desland, the unworldly Englishman
who falls under her spell?
This is the haunted story of Alan’s love for
a woman beautiful and voluptuous beyond
experience or even imagination; yet at the
same time mysterious and disturbing as a
pagan goddess. What darkness underlay
the bliss and fear she inspired?
Like a slowly intensifying August
thunderstorm, the dark forces gather in a
crescendo of terror.
