Description

'The best lives leave a mark.'

Mara's island is one of stories and magic, but every story ends in the same way. She will finish her days on the cliff, turned to stone and gazing out at the horizon like all the islanders before her.

Mara's parents - a boxer and a ballerina - chose this enchanted place as a refuge from the turbulence of their previous lives; they wanted to bring up their children somewhere special and safe. But the island and the sea don't care what people want, and when they claim a price from her family, Mara's world unravels.

It takes the arrival of Pearl, mysterious and irresistible, to light a spark in Mara again, and allow her to consider a different story for herself.

The Gloaming is a gorgeous tale of love and grief, and the gap between fairytales and real life.

Logan brings it off, daringly ... a richly imagined and many-layered novel.' -- The Scotsman 'A mystical story to lose yourself in.' -- Heat Magazine 'A gorgeous story and unlike anything else.' -- The Sun
