The magical story of a floating circus and two young women in search of a home.

A flooded world.

A floating circus.

Two women in search of a home.

North lives on a circus boat with her beloved bear, keeping a secret that could capsize her life.

Callanish lives alone in her house in the middle of the ocean, tending the graves of those who die at sea. As penance for a terrible mistake, she has become a gracekeeper.

A chance meeting between the two draws them magnetically to one another - and to the promise of a new life.

But the waters are treacherous, and the tide is against them.

'The Gracekeepers is enchanting and heart-tugging. If you love Margaret Atwood you'll love this' Sunday Telegraph

Reviews for The Gracekeepers

Highly original ... set in a haunting sea-world both familiar and mysterious -- Ursula K. Le Guin Truly magical...even those who wouldn't normally touch a fantasy novel...will love the drama of the circus. Engaging, quirky...perfect for summer escapism. Read it in the bathtub for a truly immersive experience! Heat A bold, fresh new talent... a wild, original imagination Independent on Sunday A gorgeously melancholy novel, a post-apocalyptic fairy tale of mermen and mourning birds, ghost cities on the ocean floor, and precious soil. I envy the reader who is just now picking it up. Herald Likened to Margaret Atwood, The Gracekeepers is a wondrous read Stylist Likened to Margaret Atwood, The Gracekeepers is a wondrous read Stylist Clever and original -- Kate Saunders The Times The Gracekeepers is enchanting and heart-tugging.
