Apple Tree Yard trailer and tie-in edition released

Faber has re-issued Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty with a new jacket to tie-in with the upcoming BBC adaptation starring Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin. 

Married with two grown-up children, Watson's character, Yvonne Carmichael, lives a contented, conventional suburban life. But her world spirals into chaos when a chance encounter leads to an impulsive and passionate affair with a charismatic stranger, played by Chaplin.

Made by Kudos, the producers of "Broadchurch" and "Humans", "Apple Tree Yard" is a thriller that "puts women’s lives at the heart of a gripping, insightful story about the values we live by and the choices we make,” a BBC spokesperson said.

The first episode of the four-part adaptation will be broadcast on BBC One on Sunday 22nd January at 9pm.

Across all editions, Apple Tree Yard has sold 126,780 copies for £718,186 since it was first published in 2013.

Doughty’s eighth novel, Black Water, about espionage, love and redemption, was published by Faber in June 2016.
