A modern novel set in the isles.
“Well paced and absorbing, with authentic character.
“The observations of the natural environment are made with a scientist’s eye but the compassion is that of an artist. Like all the best novelists, Jessie Watt challenges and unsettles yet leaves us with the right to hope.
“The novel is firmly rooted in the reality of the Scottish landscape, the cutting edge of scientific thought, yet twists and turns like the most satisfactory of fantasies. A great read!”
Alison Tavendale, Writer in Residence, Insch.
