In this adventure story set around the year 600, three Irishmen vow to leave the world behind and set out in a small boat to found a monastery on an island their leader has seen in a dream, with only faith to guide them. Drifting out into the Atlantic, they find an impossibly steep, bare rock inhabited by tens of thousands of birds, and claim it for God. In such a place, what will survival mean? Haven is Donoghue’s fourteenth novel (and eighteenth book of fiction) and was a bestseller in Canada and Ireland on publication.
