I’m pleased to reveal my pitch/blurb for my forthcoming novel, Ethersay. Currently pitching my novel to literary agents, fingers crossed!
The day after the referendum, my life fell apart…
The day after the Scottish independence referendum in 2014, Glaswegian Yes activist Rebecca Owen decides to run away. After being involved in a car accident she is knocked unconscious and when she wakes, she finds herself inexplicably marooned on an isolated Scottish island, Ethersay.
Suffering from memory loss, Rebecca finds herself drawn into the island’s mysteries, particularly those surrounding the strange disappearance of a young woman, Delilah Berry, whose fate seems to be inextricably intertwined with her own. As Rebecca draws closer to the truth about Delilah, she is forced to confront what happened to her in Glasgow, and everything she lost, with devastating consequences.
Woven across two timelines which draw together one woman’s experiences of remote island life and the climax of the Scottish referendum in Glasgow, Ethersay is a contemporary, literary novel about the search for truth, but also the pain of remembering.
