Year of Publication


Reading Kirsty Logan’s first novel is a magical and mysterious experience, and features not just one, but two completely hypnotic heroines. Logan has been compared to Angela Carter and Margaret Atwood – high praise indeed, and well deserved. This is a highly original novel to curl up with on a stormy day. -- Wendy Kirk, Glasgow Women's Library
