Helen Dunmore's six best books

Helen Dunmore's books include the Orange prize-winning novel The Siege and the new novel, Exposure. One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
TO THE LIGHTHOUSE by Virginia Woolf

You can hear the sea in this haunting novel – something that has always been central to my life and writing. It’s a wonderful portrait of the parent-child relationship but it’s also about the search for liberty and the acknowledgement of limitations.
