We’re delighted to share an exclusive extract with you from this immersive, sweeping debut! In Lucy Holland’s Sistersong, we travel back to 6th-century Britain to a kingdom besieged by Saxons and their Christian god. Three sisters are all that stands between the old ways and a world on the precipice of change. Riva, Keyne and Sinne become entangled in a web of treachery and heartbreak, and must fight to forge their own paths while rediscovering the power that lies in the land and within themselves.
