Set in the leafy northern suburbs of Sydney during the 1940s, The Watch Tower is a novel of relentless and acute psychological power.

Following their father's death, Laura and Clare are withdrawn from their elite private boarding school by their mother. As their mother slowly withdraws from them, the two are left to fend for themselves. Laura's boss Felix is there to help, even offering to marry Laura if she will have him. However Felix is not all that he seems and little by little the two sisters grow complicit with his obsessions, his cruelty and his need to control.

'The Watch Tower is a revelation. It's searing, not only in its depiction of a Sydney summer but of the fate of women, trapped in the domestic sphere. It's a stop-your-heart kind of book.'
The Guardian

'Elizabeth Harrower's tale of a cruel and oppressive marriage is a forgotten gem of Australian literature ... Harrower captures brilliantly the struggle to retain a self amid both domestic and global conflict.'
The Observer

‘To create a monster as continually credible, comic and nauseating as Felix is a feat of a very high order … a dense, profoundly moral novel of our time.’
The Sydney Morning Herald
