WALKING BOOK CLUB: 2pm Saturday 12th June 2021
The High House by Jessie Greengrass
Hurrah, we can gather, walk and talk once more! We look forward to welcoming you back to our Walking Book Club and the footpaths of Dulverton.
A stunning novel of the extraordinary and the everyday, The High House explores how we get used to change that once seemed unthinkable, how we place the needs of our families against the needs of others - and it asks us who, if we had to, we would save.
Francesca is Caro's stepmother, and Pauly's mother. A scientist, she can see what is going to happen.
The high house was once her holiday home; now looked after by locals Grandy and Sally, she has turned it into an ark, for when the time comes. The mill powers the generator; the orchard is carefully pruned; the greenhouse has all its glass intact. Almost a family, but not quite, they plant, store seed, and watch the weather carefully.
'A master observer of inter-human atmosphere'
'This book is completely beautiful'
