Grace McCleen: The Offering

by Team Riverside

Signed copies available – £17.99

Grace McCleen THE OFFERINGWe now have signed copies of the acclaimed new book by Grace McCleen in stock. A novel about faith, innocence and sin, the lyrical prose also evokes the rhythms and beauty of the natural world. In The Offering, a charismatic psychiatrist believes he can unlock Madeline’s memory by taking her step by step through the preceding year, when her father moved the family to an island he was certain God had guided them to. McCleen’s third novel was praised in The Guardian by poet and author John Burnside as “wonderfully suspenseful and deeply moving… full of insights about the nature of madness”, while the Independent on Sunday described it as “strange and beautiful”.
