Description

Once it was a family home. Now they are all at sea...

When Anna and David receive a phone call late one evening, their lives are upturned. Within minutes, they are travelling to the west coast of Scotland, preparing to care for two young sisters, tragically and suddenly orphaned.

It's a beautiful place, the heather is in bloom, the birds wheel above the waves, the deer graze peacefully in the distance. But the large granite house is no longer a home for the girls, and Anna knows she can never take the place of their mother. Then David invites his friend to stay, to 'ease them through' and Anna finds herself increasingly isolated, with everything she - and the girls - once knew of life discarded and overruled by a man of whom she is deeply suspicious.

'This slender novel puts a fragile family under the spotlight with great effect' - Cathy Rentzenbrink

'Exquisitely written, with a beautiful balance between darkness and humour' - Joanna Cannon

'A clever exploration of family and grief' - Red
