“Dawn comes. I turn around and walk back the way that I have come, up the path, away from the river – towards the high house, which is my home.”
The High House: You think you have time, and then all at once, you don’t… The Book Fairies have been sharing an important piece of climate fiction today from Jessie Greengrass – and we hope the lucky finders really enjoy meeting the characters Caro, Pauly, Grandy and Sally!
About the book:
Perched on a hill above a village by the sea, the high house has a mill, a vegetable garden and a barn full of supplies.
Caro and her younger half-brother, Pauly, arrive there one day to find it cared for by Grandy and his granddaughter, Sally. Not quite a family, they learn to live together, and care for one another.
But there are limits even to what the ailing Grandy knows about how to survive, and, if the storm comes, it might not be enough.
We love hearing from finders and here are a few of the pics we received from finders of The High House today!
Not lucky enough to find one?
The High House is available at all good book shops! However, if you’d rather order from home, you can still support indies (YEY!) by getting your copy of The High House from Bookshop.org 🙂
