The Offing : Benjamin Myers

A very quick We Love! Courtesy of the ever lovely James Rayner

Sunny, idyllic and quietly powerful.

Set just after the Second World War, The Offing follows a young man from County Durham who leaves behind his industrial town in search of adventure. He stumbles across a cottage, half-consumed by weeds, and its reclusive owner, Dulcie Piper. An unlikely friendship develops which over the course of one summer profoundly alters both of their futures.

Focusing on nature, grief and the meaning of life, it’s a truly joyful book that you could read time and time again.
