Maine, USA

The setting of the novel is a fictional mansion very remote and on the edge of a cliff in Maine. The main character  is called to become a carer of someone here.

” The patient has suffered a series of strokes many years ago and requires constant care. She had a full time nurse – a private one- who departed quite suddenly.”

When it’s asked where the house is, the answer comes as simply ‘out of town’ and ‘ on the Cliffs.”

“The Cliffs – only ridiculously rich people live there, ensconsced in massive houses atop torcky bluffs that overlook the ocean.”
