Time and Tide in Sarajevo

How do we find hope in a world that feels beyond repair?

Time and Tide in Sarajevo hooked me from page one. Bronwyn Birdsall has written a triumph of a book – a tender, careful, beautiful love letter to a city and its people that grapples with belonging and the possibility of repair. I couldn’t put this page-turner down!’

Sarah Sentilles, author of Draw Your Weapons and Stranger Care

‘A vivid and compelling novel that goes right to the beating heart of modern-day Sarajevo.’

Marele Day, author of Lambs of God

‘A fine thread of tension and mystery binds this beautiful, gentle story. Time and Tide in Sarajevo is both fascinating and touching, encompassing lovely details of life in Sarajevo.’

Mirandi Riwoe, author of Stone Sky Gold Mountain

'In Time and Tide in Sarajevo, Bronwyn Birdsall constructs an intricate world, where old pain and contemporary frustration ignite and hope and despair are tightly woven. A tinderbox of a novel. Finely-crafted and absorbing.’

Jessie Cole, author of Staying and Desire
