Discover the best new books by writers from across the island of Ireland with our Local Voices Book Box, a book subscription box that celebrates the best of local literature and creativity. 

With each box, you'll enjoy a diverse mix of new writing from Irish and Northern Irish authors, as well as a delicious chocolatey treat to relax with in every box.

What's inside?

  • Your new book - written by an Irish or Northern Irish author and published in paperback within the last 12 months.
  • A new bookmark - so you never lose your place again.
  • A delicious sweet treat - usually chocolate, though sometimes we like to mix it up with other locally-produced goodies such as fudge.

Monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly subscription options available, or treat yourself to a one-off box with no commitment needed.

This Month's Book:

The Home Scar by Kathleen MacMahon

On opposite sides of the world, half-siblings Cassie and Christo have built their lives around work, intent on ignoring their painful past. When a dramatic storm in Galway hits the headlines, they're drawn back there to revisit a glorious childhood summer, the last before their mother died.

But their journey uncovers memories of a far less happy summer - one that had tragic consequences. Confronted with the havoc their mother left in her wake, Cassie and Christo are forced to face their past and - ready or not - to deal with the messy tangle of parental love and neglect that shaped them. The Home Scar is a luminous and precise story about the inheritance of loss and the possibility of finally making peace with it.
