Redder Days

by Sue Rainsford

Redder Days Synopsis

Twins Anna and Adam live in an abandoned commune in a volatile landscape where they perform devotions to a world-ending event they believe is imminent. Adam keeps watch by day, Anna by night. They meet at dawn and dusk. Their only companion is Koan, the commune's former leader who still exerts a malignant control over their daily rituals.When one of the former commune inhabitants returns, everything they had known to be true is thrown into question.Dazzling, strange and incredibly moving, Redder Days is a stunning exploration of the consequences of power wielded by the wrong hands, the emotional impact of abandonment, and the resilience of the human spirit in the most hopeless of situations.

Redder Days Press Reviews

Impressive . . . Rainsford is a writer to watch * Metro on Follow Me To Ground * Enthralling . . . Lyrical, dark and detailed, the story twists like a root, bent in one way by desire, in another by fate * Daily Mail on Follow Me To Ground * A wildly imaginative exploration of desire, fear and what it means to be a person . . . Beautiful and terrifying * Sunday Times on Follow Me To Ground * Rainsford writes beautifully with a lyrical, earthy prose which is evocative and eviscerating yet mesmerising * Irish Independent on Follow Me To Ground * A tangled, gnarled, wonderfully original, strange, beautiful beast of a book. I will be reading everything Rainsford ever writes -- DAISY JOHNSON * on Follow Me To Ground *
