ISBN: 9781911214397 Category: Tags: ,


‘A modern gothic triumph. Spectacularly well-observed profoundly disquieting and utterly riveting. Like all Evie Wyld’s work it is startlingly insightful about psychological and physical abuse. It is a haunting masterful novel.’ -Max Porter Surging out of the sea the Bass Rock has for centuries watched over the lives that pass under its shadow on the Scottish mainland. And across the centuries the fates of three women are linked: to this place to each other. In the early 1700s Sarah accused of being a witch flees for her life. In the aftermath of the Second World War Ruth navigates a new house a new husband and the strange waters of the local community. Six decades later the house stands empty. Viv mourning the death of her father catalogues Ruth’s belongings and discovers her place in the past – and perhaps a way forward. Each woman’s choices are circumscribed in ways big and small by the men in their lives. But in sisterhood there is the hope of survival and new life. Intricately crafted and compulsively readable The Bass Rock burns bright with anger and love.
