Launch event for Unsettled Ground, by Claire Fuller, 7pm online on Thursday 25th March 2021
P&G Wells is delighted to present the launch of Claire Fuller’s fourth novel, Unsettled Ground. The evening will include readings and music, followed by a Q&A.
About Unsettled Ground: Twins Jeanie and Julius have always been different from other people. At 51 years old, they still live with their mother, Dot, in rural isolation and poverty. Inside their old cottage they make music, and in the garden they grow (and sometimes kill) everything they need for sustenance. But when Dot dies suddenly, threats to their livelihood start raining down. Jeanie and Julius would do anything to preserve their small sanctuary against the perils of the outside world, even as their mother’s secrets begin to unravel, putting everything they thought they knew about their lives at stake. Unsettled Ground is a heart-stopping novel of betrayal and resilience, love and survival. It is a portrait of life on the fringes of society that explores with dazzling emotional power how we can build our lives on broken foundations, and spin light from darkness.
Claire Fuller is a Winchester-based author. Her first novel, Our Endless Numbered Days won the Desmond Elliott Prize for debut fiction, Swimming Lessons was shortlisted for the Encore Award, and Bitter Orange was longlisted for the International Dublin Literary Award.
