Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

British sisters Katie and Mia couldn’t be more different. Older sibling Katie is the responsible one, getting a good job after university and settling down in London. Mia, on the other hand, is the wild child, shunning work, sleeping around, and succumbing to the temptations of drugs and drink. One day, free-spirited Mia announces plans to travel the globe. Katie suspects nothing; it’s just her sister’s latest ruse to escape the real world. (She might even be a bit envious, wishing she were brazen enough to break from her staid existence.) When Mia is found dead in Bali, Katie can’t believe the authorities, who’ve declared it a suicide. But all Katie has to go on is Mia’s travel journal, returned by the police after her death. Determined to find answers, she leaves her fiancé behind and retraces Mia’s journey. From day one, Katie is rattled by revelations about their father, her soon-to-be husband, and Mia’s best friend, Finn. Alternating chapters juxtaposing the two sisters’ lives engage readers from the start in Clarke’s accomplished debut. --Allison Block

Review

“A satisfying exploration of two sisters’ relationship, cleverly put together and written in a way that draws the reader along.” Source: The Free-Lance Star

“In the same vein as Rosamund Lupton’s Sister, Clarke takes the reader on an exciting and mysterious trail. . . . [She] does a nice job of creating characters who make us care about them and situations that are exciting and believable. A great read for fans of smart contemporary women’s fiction as well as thriller and mystery readers.” Source: Library Journal (starred review)

"Alternating chapters juxtaposing the two sisters’ lives engage readers from the start in Clarke’s accomplished debut." Source: Booklist

“A tender and intricate meditation on sisterhood and family, Swimming at Night is an accomplished debut. With a deft hand, Lucy Clarke weaves a deep and compelling story that is as much about what binds us together as it is about what tears us apart. Perfectly capturing the impossibly complicated love of siblings, this is a rich and moving story that lingers long after the book is closed.” Author: Lisa Unger, author of Heartbroken and Beautiful Lies

Swimming at Night reaches deep, exploring sibling relationships, love, friendship, identity, and the willingness to put it all on the line in order to learn the truth. I loved my own journey with these two sisters and the haunting landscape of their travels!” Author: Ellen Sussman, author of French Lessons and The Paradise Guest House

"I could not put down Lucy Clarke's engaging debut, Swimming at Night. As Katie searched for the truth about her sister's death, I savored being an armchair traveler to seaside locales around the world." Author: Amanda Eyre Ward, author of Close Your Eyes and How to Be Lost
