(No reviews yet) Write a Review

WINNER OF THE 2017 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD

'A powerful, almost luminous book. I felt informed, engaged, uplifted and enriched by it' - Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love

'There isn't an uninteresting paragraph in this furious and compassionate book' - The Times

'A brave, frightening and strangely hopeful book' - Olivia Laing, author of The Lonely City

'Stott is masterly as both a storyteller and a historian' - TLS

Rebecca Stott was born into a closed Christian sect which believed the world was ruled by Satan: women were made to wear headscarves, non-sect books were forbidden and those who disobeyed the rules were punished.

Decades later, as Rebecca's father lay dying, he begged her to help him write the story of their family, who for generations had worshipped in the Brethren's 'Iron Room' - and of his own part in enforcing the rules.

In In the Days of Rain Rebecca gathers the broken threads of her father's story, and her own, into a powerful exploration of the fault-lines between faith and doubt, duty and love.

'A marvellous, strange, terrifying book' - Francis Spufford, author of Golden Hill


AUTHOR: Rebecca Stott is a novelist and historian. She is Professor of English Literature and Creative Writing at UEA. She lives in Norwich.
