The Light Keeper
Her husband Jack is desperate to find her before it is too late. But Sarah does not want to be found. She’s run away to be alone, to face a moment of truth that will mean life or death.
And there’s someone else seeking answers up here on the high cliffs where the seabirds soar . . . A man known only as the Keeper, living in an old lighthouse right on the cusp of a four hundred foot drop, who is discovering that sometimes love takes you to the edge.
'Cole writes with human warmth and bittersweet emotion. I loved this.' - Matt Haig, number one best-selling author of The Humans, Reasons To Stay Alive and Notes On A Nervous Planet
Cole writes with human warmth and bittersweet emotion. I loved this.
A beautifully haunting read. Evocative, spiritual and deeply immersive.
Mesmerising and lyrical, Cole creates atmosphere you can breathe and emotion that can shred your heart.
The Light Keeper is as compelling and ambitious as it is deeply moving. In the interchange of landscape, characters, the here and now and the 'other', it brilliantly captures the real spiritual debate of the twenty-first century.
[On HUNGRY FOR HOME] Extraordinary. When I put it down, I wasn’t sure whether I had seen the film or read the text. The quality of its writing creates an essence which is both visual, oral and literary.
[On MY FATHER WAS A HERO] A masterpiece. As good as anything you will read this year or next.
[On IS GOD STILL AN ENGLISHMAN?] You stay with Moreton because you can’t bear to jump off. He dazzles, has verve, holds your eye; this charismatic, hypnotic celebrant.
