Haven by Emma Donoghue


The hugely anticipated novel from the internationally bestselling author of The Pull of the Stars and Room

Three men vow to leave the world behind them. They set out in a small boat for an island their leader has seen in a dream, with only faith to guide them. What they find is the extraordinary island now known as Skellig Michael.

Haven, Emma Donoghue's gripping and moving novel, has her trademark psychological intensity - but this story is like nothing she has ever written before.

In seventh-century Ireland, a scholar and priest called Artt has a dream telling him to leave the sinful world behind. Taking two monks - young Trian and old Cormac - he rows down the river Shannon in search of an isolated spot on which to found a monastery. Drifting out into the Atlantic, the three men find an impossibly steep, bare island, inhabited by tens of thousands of birds, and claim it for God.

In such a place, what will survival mean?


'Haven is a beautiful and timely novel about isolation, passion and the conflict between obedience and self-preservation. The island setting and the characters stayed with me long after I finished reading.'  Sarah Moss, author of Summerwater

'A patient, thoughtful novel with much to say about spirituality, hope, and human failure, and about the miracle of mercy' Esi Edugyan, Booker-shortlisted author of Washington Black

'In 7th C, Ireland, three men set sail to a bird-thick island to find God. Emma Donoghue combines pressure-cooker intensity + radical isolation, to stunning effect. What is Divine Grace? Purity of soul? Virtue? Not what they think.' Margaret Atwood
