Set in the early nineteenth century, Pharos is a dazzling ghost story from award-winning author Alice Thompson. A young woman is washed up on the shores of Jacob's Rock, a remote lighthouse island off the coast of Scotland. She does not know who she is or how she got there. She has no memory. The keeper of the lighthouse and his assistant take her in and feed and clothe her. But this mysterious woman is not all that she seems, and neither is the remote and wind-swept island.Eerily reminiscent of Turn of the Screw and The Others, Pharos is a breathless tale of the supernatural.
