Miri thinks she has got her wife back, when Leah finally returns after a deep sea mission that ended in catastrophe. It soon becomes clear, though, that Leah may have come back wrong. Whatever happened in that vessel, whatever it was they were supposed to be studying before they were stranded on the ocean floor, Leah has carried part of it with her, onto dry land and into their home.

To have the woman she loves back should mean a return to normal life, but Miri can feel Leah slipping from her grasp. Memories of what they had before – the jokes they shared, the films they watched, all the small things that made Leah hers – only remind Miri of what she stands to lose. Living in the same space but suddenly separate, Miri comes to realise that the life that they had might be gone.

Our Wives Under The Sea is the debut novel from the critically acclaimed author of salt slow. It’s a story of falling in love, loss, grief, and what life there is in the deep, deep sea.

"A wonderful novel, deeply romantic and fabulously strange. I loved this book."
Sarah Waters

"A strange, unnerving novel that wrongfoots you at every turn and invites you to think again about loss, absence, and transformationOur Wives Under The Sea also returns wholly original answers to that great question, 'Where did we come from, where are we going?' It is a beautiful, lyrically written elegy."
Neel Mukherjee

"Julia Armfield is one of my favourite writers, Our Wives Under The Sea moves fluidly between horror story and love story, the gorgeous and the grotesque. A contemporary gothic fairy tale, sublime in its creepiness."
Florence Welch

"Beautiful, otherworldly, like floating through water with your eyes open."
Daisy Johnson

"Delicate and horrifyingOur Wives Under The Sea is a darkly brilliant novel that submerges the reader's imagination in the depths of the unknown."
Megan Hunter

"Reading this book is like diving into the deepest depths of the ocean and finding beautiful and disturbing wonders."
Kirsty Logan

"Our Wives is spooky and romantic: a gorgeous, lyrical novel that gets under your skin. Armfield leads you softly through a story that feels epic and intimate at the same time."
Sarvat Hasin

"Tender, strange, lucid, and so assured – comparisons feel insubstantial, but if you love sci fi or love stories or books that defy labels or chew-your-arm-off good writing, this is for you."
Kiran Millwood Hargrave
