Inspired by volunteer work for The Samaritans, and her studies into the art of bookbinding, Bridget Collins’ debut novel is an exploration of mental illness, memory loss, and a shamelessly romantic love story.
'The Binding held me captive from the start and refused to set me free. It is a beautifully crafted tale of dark magic and forbidden passion, where unspeakable cruelty is ultimately defeated by enduring love. Breath-taking!' -Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things
'An original concept, beautifully written. Collins’ prose is spellbinding.' -Laura Purcell, author of The Silent Companions
