    DescriptionThe new novel from Susan Fletcher, author of the bestselling 'Eve Green' and 'Oystercatchers'. 1692. Corrag, a wild young girl from the mountains of Scotland, has been imprisoned as a witch. Terrified, in a cold, filthy cell, she awaits her fate of death by burning - until she is visited by Charles Leslie, a young Irishman, hungry to question her. For Corrag knows more than it seems: she was witness to the bloody and brutal Massacre of Glencoe. But to reveal what she knows, Corrag demands a chance to tell her true story. It is a tale of passion and courage, magic and betrayal, and the difference that a single heart can make to the great events of history.

    Review quote
    'Corrag's descriptions combine the oblique originality of a child with the precision and control of a poet...the novel is crowded with images stunning in their freshness and simplicity...there are moments when the sheer beauty of the prose takes one's breath away...it is a novel of extraordinary beauty and quiet power that is impossible, having read it, not to look at the world anew' Guardian 'Corrag is a beguiling and sensitive heroine and Fletcher's powers of description are as strong as ever in her third novel' Financial Times 'Fletcher gives Corrag a lyrical narrative voice...a fascinating aspect of history' Daily Mail 'Susan Fletcher's lyrical, poetic style is burnished to a rare shine in her third book...her descriptions of the Scottish landscape are breathtaking, as is her depiction of the lonesome girl who is enraptured by the beauty of the Highlands...Incredibly moving' Marie Claire 'As compelling as it is heartbreaking...Fletcher's powerful prose will stay with you long after you finish the last page. Highly recommended' Image Magazine
