Cailean Steed Launches Home

Cailean Steed joins us to launch their incredible debut novel Home, a moving story of cults, escape and return, and what we owe each other... and ourselves, told with the gripping pace of a thriller! Cailean will be joined in discussion by Kirstin Innes, author of Scabby Queen and Fishnets, to talk about their research into cults, the role(s) of family in the novel, and more in what promises to be a brilliant conversation to celebrate this much-anticipated book!

Someone has broken into Zoe's flat. A man she thought she'd never have to see again. They call him the Hand of God. He knows about her job in the cafe, her life in Dublin, her ex-girlfriend, even the knife she's hidden under the mattress. She thought she'd left him far behind, along with the cult of the Children and their isolated compound Home - but now he's found her, and Zoe realises she must go back with him if she's to rescue the sister who helped her escape originally. But returning to Home means going back to the enforced worship and strict gender roles Zoe has long since moved beyond; back to the abuse and indoctrination she's fought desperately to overcome... Going back will make her question everything she believed about her past - but could also risk her hard-won freedom. Can she break free a second time?
