Publisher's Summary

Against the backdrop of the daunting Scottish Highlands, young Kate tries to build a new life with her mild-mannered husband, who has taken a teaching position at the local boys’ school.

Praised by critics for his clean prose style, characterisation, and the strong sense of place in his novels, Philip Maitland Hubbard was born in Reading, Berkshire, and brought up in the Channel Islands. He was educated at Oxford, where he won the Newdigate Prize for English verse in 1933. From 1934 until its disbandment in 1947 he served with the Indian Civil service, then for the British Council, before retiring to work as a freelance writer. He contributed to a number of publications, including Punch, and wrote 16 novels for adults and two children's books. He lived in Dorset and Scotland, and many of his novels draw on his interest in and knowledge of rural pursuits and folk religion.

What the Critics Say

"A most imaginative and distinguished practitioner… with an assurance and individuality of style and tone" (The Times)

"If any man had the art of button-holing, making you read on, it is P M Hubbard… suspense could hardly be better sustained" (Tatler)

"Hubbard succeeds in investing everyday circumstances and the commonplace functions and rituals of daily living with a shapelessly menacing quality" (Anthony Quinton, Times Literary Supplement)

"Avoiding clichés as much as possible, interested in people yet devoid of sentimentality, without even any overt physical action, Hubbard can suggest untold horror in a few deft passages" (Anthony Boucher)
