KIRKUS REVIEW

A novel in the tradition of Gallows' Orchard, which emerges with a certain stark beauty in spite of an incredible number of tragedies and violent deaths. A morbid tale, of two youths, twins, a world apart in temperament and attitude toward life, and of their molding of their lives and the lives of those about them. The Scottish island which is their home, seems to weave a spell, now of the sea, now of the land over the people. Not a book to be sold indiscrimately.
