Listening Still by Anne Griffin

From the bestselling author of When All is Said comes a delicious new novel about a young woman who can hear the dead – a talent which is both a gift and a curse.


Jeanie Masterson has a gift: she can hear the recently dead and give voice to their final wishes and revelations.  Inherited from her father, this gift has enabled the family undertakers to flourish in their small Irish town.  Yet she has always been uneasy about censoring some of the dead’s last messages to the living.  Unsure, too, about the choice she made when she left school seventeen years ago: to stay or leave for a new life in London with her charismatic teenage sweetheart.

So when Jeanie’s parents unexpectedly announce their plan to retire, she is jolted out of her limbo…

In this captivating successor to her bestselling debut, Anne Griffin portrays a young woman who is torn between duty, a comfortable marriage and a role she both loves and hates and her last chance to break free, unaware she has not been alone in softening the truth for a long while.

Peer & Press Reviews

Stunning – a book that surpasses all expectations and thoroughly cements Anne Griffin’s place on the short but venerable list of writers whose work is always a must-read.  A delicately-hewn delight from first sentence to last.

Billy O’Callaghan, author of Life Sentences

A wonderfully unexpected tale of love, death and everything in between.

Graham Norton, author of Home Stretch
