'A remarkable story, remarkably told... I loved it. Claire McGlasson is a brave and brilliant new voice in fiction.' Jess Kidd, author of Himself and The Hoarder



Welcome to the Panacea Society, a terribly English cult...


Dilys is a devoted member of The Panacea Society, populated almost entirely by virtuous single ladies.


When she strikes up a friendship with Grace, a new recruit, God finally seems to be smiling upon her. The friends become closer as they wait for the Lord to return to their very own Garden of Eden, and Dilys feels she has found the right path at last.


But Dilys is wary of their leader's zealotry and suspicious of those who would seem to influence her for their own ends. As her feelings for Grace bud and bloom, the Society around her begins to crumble. Faith is supplanted by doubt as both women come to question what is true and fear what is real.

Clare McGlasson

Claire is a journalist who works for ITV News Anglia and enjoys the variety of life on the road with a TV camera. Her role gives her access to high-profile interviewees, and takes her behind-the-scenes at places that she’d never ordinarily get to go. But the biggest privilege of her job is spending time with people at the very best, and very worst, times of their lives and helping them to tell their stories. She lives in Cambridgeshire with her favourite people – her husband, daughter and son.

Her first novel, The Rapture, which is based on true events in an Edwardian women’s cult, was published by Faber in June 2019.
