Devotion is another compelling story from the international bestselling author of Burial Rites, Hannah Kent.

Growing up in the village of Kay in Prussia, 1836, Hanne Nussbaum would rather run wild in the forest than conform to the limitations of womanhood. Hanne is friendless and misunderstood ... until she meets Thea. When Hanne and her family are forced to flee religious persecution, they board a crowded, disease-riddled ship bound for the colony of South Australia. In the face of brutal hardship, the beauty of whale song enters Hanne’s heart, along with the miracle of her love for Thea. Theirs is a bond that nothing can break. The whale passed. The music faded.

'Devotion is rare and exquisite, both beautiful and muscular in its portrayal of love found and denied. It’s a story of love as a radical act, and a celebration of place and persistence. As we’ve come to expect from Kent, this is masterful storytelling with pull-no-punches stakes. It’s taken root in my heart.'
Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars

'Hannah Kent’s latest novel is stunning – full of magic and adventure. I fell in love with language again reading it. So beautiful and so raw. Devotion is impossibly good.'
Evie Wyld, author of The Bass Rock

'Such a glorious love story. And the poetry of the landscape had, for me, a Whitmanesque sensibility. A mighty impassioned cry to love and the land.'
Sarah Winman, author of Still Life
