'Corrag's descriptions combine the oblique originality of a child with the precision and control of a poet...the novel is crowded with images stunning in their freshness and simplicity...there are moments when the sheer beauty of the prose takes one's breath away...it is a novel of extraordinary beauty and quiet power that is impossible, having read it, not to look at the world anew' Guardian
'Corrag is a beguiling and sensitive heroine and Fletcher's powers of description are as strong as ever in her third novel' Financial Times
'Fletcher gives Corrag a lyrical narrative voice...a fascinating aspect of history' Daily Mail
'Susan Fletcher's lyrical, poetic style is burnished to a rare shine in her third book...her descriptions of the Scottish landscape are breathtaking, as is her depiction of the lonesome girl who is enraptured by the beauty of the Highlands...Incredibly moving' Marie Claire
'As compelling as it is heartbreaking...Fletcher's powerful prose will stay with you long after you finish the last page. Highly recommended' Image Magazine
