There’s something wrong next door. At least, that’s what neighbours Howie Jeffries and Emily Phane both think. Howie is an accidental recluse, content with his fishing and dreams of someday sailing away on a boat. Emily couldn’t be more different: she’s irreverent, outgoing and seemingly well-adjusted. But when Emily returns from college to care for her dying grandfather, Howie can’t help but notice her increasingly erratic behavior - not to mention her newfound love of nocturnal gardening.

Professional reviews

"A luminous story of a most curious friendship, for fans of Rachel Joyce. ‘The Household Spirit is very special. There’s a pleasing familiarity to it but it’s also fresh, funny and unpredictable.’ RODDY DOYLE ‘Rarely have I been so captivated by a novel. Its compassion, wisdom, warmth. I loved it.’ NATHAN FILER, author of The Shock of the Fall"
