Book Review: Tom Vowler's "What Lies Within"

What Lies Within is the debut novel from South West based writer, Tom Vowler, which tells the story of Anna, an artist who lives on Dartmoor with her husband and two children. When news arrives that a convict has escaped from a local prison, Anna worries for her family’s safety…

Meanwhile, a young school teacher struggles to come to terms with being brutally attacked by a pupil she was trying to offer extra support to. Returning home to a family who are unsure how to deal with her, she attempts to start living again.

Having been impressed by his collection The Method and Other Stories, I was excited to see how Vowler’s novel would match up. I’m pleased to say it did not disappoint.
