About the Event
Master storyteller Robert Harris returns with The Second Sleep, a novel set in Exmoor in 1648. He talks to Robbie Millen about his new book, featuring a priest who arrives to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. But all is not as it seems, and as the story unravels so does the young priest’s faith in himself and everything he believes.
About the Book
The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts - coins, fragments of glass, human bones - which the old parson used to collect.As Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes - about himself, his faith and the history of his world - is tested to destruction.
