WIN copies of UNSETTLED GROUND for your reading group, plus reading guide

When you live on the edge of society, it only takes one step to fall between the cracks.

UNSETTLED GROUND by Claire Fuller is an engrossing, unsettling, and profoundly moving novel about people living on the margins in rural England. Since it was first published a year ago, it’s received a fantastic spread of reviews, it was shortlisted for the 2021 Women’s Prize for Fiction, and it’s currently on the shortlist for the Costa Novel Award.

We are offering three book clubs the chance to each win ten paperback copies to read and discuss. If you’d like to be considered, please email by Thursday 6th January with a little information about your book club, and why you’d like to be considered, as well as a postal address so that we can send your copies out if you are successful.

We have also produced a reading group guide for this title, which is available to download below.

We’d love to hear how you get on – please contact with any feedback!

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
