Sarah Winman’s bestselling, critically-acclaimed debut novel WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT continues to captivate and enchant readers.

The Sunday Times bestseller

This is a book about a brother and sister.

It’s a book about childhood and growing up, friendships and families, triumph and tragedy and everything in between.

More than anything,
it’s a book about love in all its forms.


'Gloriously offbeat... Winman's narrative voice is beautifully true, with a child's unsentimental clarity. A superb debut'
The Times
'Beguiling... you can't quite get the voice out of your head'
Daily Mail
'Captivating... rendered with an appealing frankness, precision and emotional acuity'
'Thronging with incident, wonder and outré language... sharply funny, whimsical and innovative'
The Guardian
