Leaves The World To Darkness

By David Boyle

Autumn 1912

Harry Weston finds his 130-year-old grandparents dead in their chairs in their ancient manor house. 

Nearly a century later, his grandson sets out to unravel the mystery that dominated their lives – the peculiar disappearance of their beautiful sister Emma. 

All the evidence points towards the guilt of her lover, the poet Lord Byron, but slowly the old house begins to give up its secrets, and the trail leads somewhere far murkier than he has ever imagined.

He discovers a missing poem, a crumbling home, a secret passage, and the answer to a question about love.

The beginnings of centuries have always been periods when fairy stories were popular, but mostly for children. 

‘Leaves The World To Darkness’ dares to be an adult novel that has fairies – or rumours of fairies – at its heart. 

‘A memorable tale of mystery and magic.’ – Robert Foster, best-selling author of ‘The Lunar Code’. 

David Boyle is a British author and journalist. He lives in Crystal Palace, London.
