Old God's Time by Sebastian Barry


Recently retired policeman Tom Kettle is settling into the quiet of his new home, a lean-to annexed to a Victorian Castle overlooking the Irish Sea. For months he has barely seen a soul, catching only glimpses of his eccentric landlord and a nervous young mother who has moved in next door.

Occasionally, fond memories of the past return, of his family, his beloved wife June andtheir two children. But when two former colleagues turn up at his door with questions about a decades-old case, one which Tom never quite came to terms with, he findshimself pulled into the darkest currents of his past.

A beautiful, haunting novel, in which nothing is quite what it seems, Old God's Time is about what we live through, what we live with, and what maysurvive of us.


'Full of love and heartache, this is an unforgettable novel from one of our finest writers.' Douglas Stuart

'Shocking, stunning and extraordinarily brave. Barry has once again written a character for the ages.' Liz Nugent
