The mountain remained, unclimbed, for the first year that they lived there.
Bell and Sigh, a couple in the infancy of their relationship, cut themselves off from friends and family. They turn their backs on a city divided by scores of streets and hundreds of sterile cherry trees, by a foul river and a declining population of house sparrows. Them in and the world out. From the top of the nearby mountain, they are told, you can see seven standing stones, seven schools, and seven steeples. All you have to do is climb.

Idol

**Dubray Staff Recommended Read** The face of a lifestyle brand with an almost cult-like following, Samantha Miller has spent her career fighting for the right of every woman to tell their truth. But her perfectly curated life begins to unravel when a childhood friend suggests that Samantha’s truth may not be the whole story. Deftly exploring wellness culture, social media influencers, and the murkier side of the #MeToo movement, this novel is as compulsive as a thriller and might be O’Neill’s best yet!
