After losing her fiancé in a shocking tragedy, Alex Morris moves from London to Edinburgh to make a break with the past.
But Alex soon discovers that discussing the Greek tragedies opens them up in unexpected ways, and she gradually develops a rapport with them. But are these tales of cruel fate and bloody revenge teaching more than Alex ever intended? And who becomes responsible when these students take the tragedies to heart, and begin interweaving their darker lessons into real life with terrible and irrevocable fury? Natalie Haynes' The Furies is a psychologically complex, dark, and twisting novel about loss, obsession and the deep tragedies that can connect us to one another even as they blind us to our fate.
