Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller

1976: Peggy Hillcoat is eight.  She spends her summer camping with her father, playing her beloved record of The Railway Children and listening to her mother’s grand piano, but her pretty life is about to change.

Her survivalist father, who has been stockpiling provisions for the end which is surely coming soon, takes her from London to a cabin in a remote European forest.  There he tells Peggy the rest of the world has disappeared.

Her life is reduced to a piano which makes music but no sound, a forest where all that grows is a means of survival.  And a tiny wooden hut that is Everything.

Peggy isn’t seen again for another nine years.

Our Endless Numbered Days won the 2015 Desmond Elliott Prize,
which recognises the best debut fiction of the year.

Peer & Press Reviews

Like all good fairy tales, this is a book filled with suspense and revelation, light and shadow and the overwhelming feeling that nothing is quite as it seems in the Hillcoats’ lives.  It’s spellbinding, scary stuff.

Eithne Farry, The Sunday Express

I tore through it, found it utterly gripping and loved its hypnotic atmosphere.  The beauty and pleasures of the natural world pitted against the unravelling horrors of isolation and insanity worked brilliantly.

Esther Freud, author of Mr Mac and Me

Fuller evokes the natural world’s beauty and brutality as her characters endure nine torrid years in the forest and the novel reaches a sinister conclusion.

Max Liu, The Independent

Narrated with warmth and compassion, Our Endless Numbered Days is a haunting and beautiful novel.  I loved every page.

Daniel Clay, author of Broken
