** Shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award 2015 **

From the writer of BBC TV's MAN IN AN ORANGE SHIRT comes Sunday Times Top Ten hardback and paperback bestseller, A PLACE CALLED WINTER - picked for the BBC Radio 2 Simon Mayo Book Club and the Waterstones Book Club.

'A mesmerising storyteller; this novel is written with intelligence and warmth' The Times


To find yourself, sometimes you must lose everything.

A shy but privileged elder son, Harry Cane has followed convention at every step. Even the beginnings of an illicit, dangerous affair do little to shake the foundations of his muted existence - until the shock of discovery and the threat of arrest force him to abandon his wife and child and sign up for emigration to Canada.

Remote and unforgiving, his allotted homestead in a place called Winter is a world away from the golden suburbs of turn-of-the-century Edwardian England. And yet it is here, isolated in a seemingly harsh landscape, under the threat of war and madness that the fight for survival will reveal in Harry an inner strength and capacity for love beyond anything he has ever known before.

Review:

Patrick Gale has written a book which manages to be both tender and epic, and carries the unmistakeable tang of a true story. I loved it. (Jojo Moyes)

Absorbing, moving and beautifully written, with echoes of EM Forster which I found especially enjoyable. (Amanda Craig)

Beautifully structured around the warmest of warm hearts, but it's also run through with something new: a devastating chill of loss, fear and exile which keeps you shaking your head and biting your lip in concern and shame and disbelief. (Louisa Young)

Bold, moving, intensely erotic - I couldn't put down this tale of passion and endurance, told with such tenderness. (Patricia Duncker)

A tender tale of loss and love (Sunday Times)

This is an intensely personal book. Gale was inspired by a true tale from his own family history, and the depth of feeling shows. It's one gay man reaching out to another across a century of social change, and his most powerfully moving novel yet (Independent)

A dramatic and affecting portrayal of dislocation, extreme environments and the traumatic effects of enforced secrecy (Observer)

A master storyteller. Quite simply, you believe every word he tells you (Independent on Sunday)

Gale is not a sentimental writer, he's vividly aware of hardship and despair, but the overwhelming emotion in this fine book is one of tender, life-affirming joy (Sun)

His best book yet (Country Life)

Book Description:

In the golden 1900s, Harry Cane, a shy, eligible gentleman of leisure is drawn from a life of quiet routine into courting and marrying Winnie, eldest daughter of the fatherless Wells clan, who are not quite as respectable as they would appear.
