About the Author

Sharon Blackie is a writer and storyteller whose work sits at the interface of psychology, myth and ecology. She is the founder of EarthLines Magazine, described by Jay Griffiths as 'a deeply intelligent publication', by George Monbiot as 'a rare combination and much needed', and by Robert Macfarlane as 'a real point of convergence for many thought-tributaries and philosophical paths'. She is the author of 'The Long Delirious Burning Blue', a novel which the Independent on Sunday called 'hugely potent. A tribute to the art of storytelling that is itself an affecting and inspiring story', and which The Scotsman called 'powerful (reminiscent of The English Patient), filmic, and achieving the kind of symmetry that novels often aspire to, but rarely reach.' Her most recent book is 'If Women Rose Rooted', a nonfiction work about Celtic women in myth and contemporary life, described by bestselling novelist Manda Scott as 'mind-blowing in the most profound and exhilarating sense ... an anthem for all we could be. It's an essential book for this, the most critical of recent times.' Sharon now lives in the hills of Donegal, in Ireland, but was formerly a crofter on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Her experiences on the westernmost edges of the Celtic fringe give her a unique perspective on the psychology of belonging, and our relationship with place. www.sharonblackie.net

Reviews

It is that rarity, a first novel that smacks of not merely confidence, but authority, a sense that the story is true and clearly envisioned, with the technique to make it seem seamless, dynamic and written with verve and a care for the English language ... The ending is powerful (reminiscent of The English Patient), filmic, and achieving the kind of symmetry that novels often aspire to, but rarely reach.' The Scotsman 'Hugely potent ... a tribute to the art of storytelling that is itself an affecting and inspiring story.' The Independent on Sunday A cleverly-woven presentation of how violence and lies within a family work down the generations.' Scottish Review of Books
