Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2006.

Can Mercy discover the truth about their lives without destroying her home and family?

Synopsis

Century by Sarah Singleton

Mercy and her sister Charity have never questioned their daily routine. They live at night, sleep during the day, and see their widowed father only rarely. Then one day, Mercy is woken to find a snowdrop on her pillow. A sign of spring, and a hint at a possible different future. This novel is about an immortal family living in a twilight world.
