Suffering a quarter-life crisis, 26-year-old Margot sets out on a journey of self-discovery—she dumps her Boston boyfriend, quits her Chicago job, and crosses the ocean to crash at her friend’s London flat.
Rather than find herself, though, she only feels more lost. An unsettling energy affects her from the moment she enters the old Victorian residence, and she spirals into depression. Frightened and questioning her perceptions, she gradually suspects her dark emotions belong to Charlotte instead.
Who is Charlotte? The name on a local gravestone could relate to Margot’s dreams and the grey woman weeping at the window.
Finding a ghost isn't what she had in mind when she went "soul searching," but somehow Margot's future may depend on Charlotte's past.
Woven between the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries, What the Clocks Know is a haunting story of love and identity that won First Place in General Fiction in the 2017 Red City Review Book Awards.
