Publisher's Summary

Everything she touches breaks.... 

Nell Ballard is a runaway. A former foster child with a dark secret she is desperate to keep, all Nell wants is to find a place she can belong. 

So when a job comes up at Starling Villas, home to the enigmatic Robin Wilder, she seizes the opportunity with both hands. 

But her new lodgings may not be the safe haven that she was hoping for. Her employer lives by a set of rigid rules, and she soon sees that he is hiding secrets of his own. 

But is Nell’s arrival at the Villas really the coincidence it seems? After all, she knows more than most how fragile people can be - and how easy they can be to break.... 

Fragile is a dark, contemporary psychological thriller with a modern Gothic twist from an award-winning and critically acclaimed writer who has been compared to Ruth Rendell, P. D. James and Val McDermid. Rebecca meets The Handmaid’s Tale in Sarah Hilary’s stand-alone breakout novel.
