Publisher Description

Three men vow to leave the world behind them. They set out in a small boat for an island their leader has seen in a dream, with only faith to guide them. What they find is the extraordinary island now known as Skellig Michael. Haven, Emma Donoghue’s deeply researched new novel, has her trademark psychological intensity—but this story is like nothing she has ever written before.

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 rows 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. In such a place, what will survival mean?

“Generating narrative tension from a minimum of action, Donoghue brings the monks’ conflicts to a climax…[in] a satisfying conclusion. Reminiscent of Room in its portrayal of fraught interactions in a confined space…More fine work from the talented Donoghue.”

— Kirkus Reviews 


  • “Combines pressure-cooker intensity [and] radical isolation to stunning effect. What is Divine Grace? Purity of soul? Virtue? Not what they think.” 

    — Margaret Atwood, #1 New York Times bestselling author
  • “High adventure and passionate belief.”

    — Library Journal
