"An amazing first novel…"
One of my reading group friends recommended this book. A novel with three voices, set in the recent past and the eighteenth century in Scotland's isle of Harris. Ruth and her husband are renovating an old house when a discovery is made during the work. It affects Ruth greatly, as her past impedes upon her present again. She resolves to uncover some truths. The construction of the novel is a wonder, with the times weaving together cleverly. The myths and legends of the sea are an integral part to the plot, as are the tragic history of the clearings. Mysteries are spoken of and truths come to light. The author's extensive research is reflected in the quality of the writing.I loved the ending!
