Sara Baume’s new novel Seven Steeples

We’re thrilled to share news of upcoming book events! We missed them, we’ve missed you, and so we have a busy spring to enjoy together.

Seven Steeples by Sara Baume

On the 7th of April we will publish Sara Baume’s new novel, Seven Steeples. It’s beautiful, compelling work, and you’re going to love it.

Bell and Sigh, a couple in the infancy of their relationship, cut themselves off from friends and family. Them in and the world out. From the top of the nearby mountain, they are told, you can see seven standing stones, seven schools, and seven steeples. All you have to do is climb.
Taking place in a remote house in the south-west of Ireland, this rich and vivid novel spans seven years and speaks to the times we live in, asking how we may withdraw, how better to live in the natural world, and how the choices made or avoided lead us home.
