Show Notes

This week I had the amazing opportunity to sit down and talk with Sara Baume who is the amazing author of the book Seven Steeples. Take a listen as we dig into her inspiration and how here art imitated life or maybe it was the other way around, but I promise you will not be disappointed.

At its core, Seven Steeples takes a look at a period of two people’s lives over the course of seven years, leading into their eighth. The characters Bell, Sigh and their dogs Voss and Pip occupy this rental house where they seem to have just kind of given up on what we would say is a normal existence. But you get the impression the author does not see it this way. Here her answer when I ask her.

  • We will talk about her naming convention for her characters
  • Whether or not they are hermits
  • The symbolism of the mountain in the book
  • We will talk about how it was so strange for me as a reader to see the world through these two seemingly strange characters, but then starting to envy them in some ways.

At the end of it all, I can highly recommend the book, Seven Steeples. Check it out. I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.
