In high summer, two lovers meet and plan a future together. But when the lovers’ secret meetings are eventually found out, the full weight of a religious, moralistic, patriarchal society bears down upon them – resulting in the ultimate punishment. The story unfolds against a rich backdrop of songs and singing, folk belief, the cruel power of the Kirk, and the turning of the agricultural year. A tragic true story passed down the centuries in song is retold in a clear and passionate new voice. Shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize.
Available in ePub Format
