Publisher's Summary

In the wink of an eye, as quick as a flea, the Devil he jumped from me to thee. And only when the Devil had gone, did I know that he and I'd been one....

Every autumn, John Pentecost returns to the farm where he grew up to help gather the sheep down from the moors for the winter. Very little changes in the Endlands, but this year, his grandfather - the Gaffer - has died, and John's new wife, Katherine, is accompanying him for the first time.

Each year, the Gaffer would redraw the boundary lines of the village, with pen and paper but also through the remembrance of tales and timeless communal rituals that keep the sheep safe from the Devil. But as the farmers of the Endlands bury the Gaffer and prepare to gather the sheep, they begin to wonder whether they've let the Devil in after all.

What a wonderful story. Take the highroad

Please listen to this book. Not only is the narrator an amazing lyrical and astute narrator, but the voice of the author easily transport you to the Highlands of Scotland where sheep get lost and so do souls as they are chased by the devil. It made me think about the things that I was told by my mother about her grandmother. Thank you and I appreciate your work please produce more.
