Chrissie Costie is a forgotten Orkney writer.
She was a contemporary and friend of Orcadian literary giants such as George Mackay Brown, Ernest Marwick and Robert Rendall but her own work has never been fully recognised and appreciated.
In this book, Ragnhild Ljosland attempts to put the record straight and argues that Costie deserves a place among the top Orkney writers and the shy lady from Kirkwall should not be dismissed as "a spinster lawyer, who wrote dialect verse in her spare time".
