A stunning audiobook 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.

Crisis slid from distant threat to imminent probability and we tuned it out like static. 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.

'An extremely thoughtful and meticulous writer.'
Sunday Times

She has a Mantel-esque way with metaphor, in which clarity of the image illuminates plot and theme.'
Daily Telegraph

'A writer who clearly has considerable gifts.'
Financial Times

'Stunning.'
Guardian
