From the author of The Devil’s Dye…
This eclectic and thought provoking collection of short stories explores topics of psychology, sexuality, adoption, and ghosts, to name but a few.
Two things bind them: firstly, the fen spirit that weaves like an eel though the tales, creeping subtly in, but soon to claim them tightly as its own. Secondly, the exploration of loss, abandonment and what it means to belong.
Just as the agricultural fen landscape fights to expose its natural marsh self, so the characters must bravely stir their true identities to try and gain inner peace.
The intertwined stories offer us a glimpse of lives lived on East Anglia’s Fenland: rich soil for the keen observational eye of Jeni Neill.
