Old God's Time
Old God’s Time
‘His work reminds us how much we need these rare gifts of the natural storyteller.’ TESSA HADLEY
TWICE WINNER OF THE COSTA BOOK OF THE YEAR
‘Have you ever been the custodian of a story no one else believed?’ ‘Oh yes,’ he said. ‘You have?’ ‘Yes,’ he said. ‘Then I can tell you.’
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 and their 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 finds himself 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 may survive of us.
