A work of fiction based loosely around historical events around Fair Isle and Orkney.
By Fiona Pearson
Hard landscapes and hard work provide the background for this tapestry of life and death.
Fatalism, joy and blind emotion play havoc with the harsh realities expected on these islands, sewn like diamonds across the waters north east of mainland Scotland. Romance is chaperoned by economic necessity, constrained by the difficulties of travel, and released by serendipitous accidents of mortality.
Unremitting hope brightens the simple lives of three generations of island folk.
