This is an auction for TRESPASS by Rose Tremain.

"The word trespass takes on multiple meanings in Tremain’s emotionally searing novel. The lives of two pairs of aging siblings converge and overlap in a lushly neglected valley in the Cévennes region of southern France. With his once-successful career as a London antiques dealer on an increasingly downward spiral, Anthony Verey decides to visit his sister Veronica, now cozily ensconced in the valley with her lover, Kitty. Disillusioned by the negative trajectory of his life and charmed by the feral beauty of the area, he decides to purchase a home nearby, causing friction between Veronica and Kitty. What appears to be the perfect property, the Mas Lunel estate, is haunted by the brutally abusive past of sibling-owners Aramon and Audrun. As these characters trespass on one another physically, emotionally, and psychologically, Tremain ratchets up the suspense."
- Booklist (US)

“A thoroughly engrossing psychological thriller. . . . Tremain’s writing is both vivid and wonderfully compressed, the eye that is cast over proceedings unblinking. . . . From an apparent idyll, Tremain has summoned a spirit of profound disquiet and, as with all her best writing, revealed the anguish that can lie just below the surface of everyday lives.” (The Independent)

“A gothic novel, dark and eerie. . . . Rose Tremain is a maestro. -” (Jane Smiley - Washington Post)

“Two pairs of siblings and their twisted pasts converge in this gripping, dark novel from Orange Prize–winner Tremain (The Road Home).... Tremain renders this untamed area with haunting prose.” (Publishers Weekly)
