The Angel in the Stone was in fine company on the shortlist for the 2018 Highland Book Prize. It was a tremendous honour to be on the list, and a fantastic weekend at the Ullapool Book Festival in May 2018 for the awards presentation. The winner, Border, by Kapka Kassabova, is a deliciously-written exploration of the mysterious borderlands between Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. I highly recommend it!

“Hooking its readers early and not letting go until the very end, The Angel In The Stone, even at its darkest, is shot through with glimmers of optimism and humanity without raising unrealistic expectations for her characters’ future.” The Herald

Maybe Finn’s madness wasn’t really madness and an angel did come for him after all…

All Calum wants is a quiet life, but the past is haunting him. He and his mother Mary still don’t talk about the death of his younger brother Finn, more than twenty years ago. Then Calum’s estranged daughter Catriona arrives with troubles of her own. Simmering resentments rise to the surface, and a family driven apart by silence must confront its secrets.
