From the bestselling author of ROOM and THE PULL OF THE STARS comes HAVEN.

Three men vow to leave the world behind them and start anew...

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 travels 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. But in such a place, far from all other humanity, what will survival mean?

Haunting, moving, and vividly told, Haven displays Emma Donoghue’s trademark world-building and psychological intensity - but this tale of the island now known as Skellig Michael is like nothing she has ever written before.
