It is the winter following the summer they met. A couple, Bell and Sigh, move into a remote house in the Irish countryside with their dogs. Both solitary with misanthropic tendencies, they leave the conventional lives stretched out before them to build another—one embedded in ritual, and away from the friends and family from whom they’ve drifted.

They arrive at their new home on a clear January day and look up to appraise the view. A mountain gently and unspectacularly ascends from the Atlantic, “as if it had accumulated stature over centuries. As if, over centuries, it had steadily flattened itself upwards.” They make a promise to climb the mountain, but—over the course of the next seven years—it remains unclimbed. We move through the seasons with Bell and Sigh as they come to understand more about the small world around them, and as their interest in the wider world recedes.

Character Development

It is hard to explain how the magic of this book is created, but magical it is. There is really no p!ot, just a recounting, in intricate detail, of the lives of two people, their dogs, the animals and landscape and sea that surrounds them, the physical objects that transform with time. Perhaps this exploration of time, of holding and losing the moment, is at the heart of the book.
