Publisher's Summary

A bewitching tale of first love, shattering grief and the dangerous magic that draws us home. 

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 fairy tales and real life.

Beautifully spoken, well written book.

I loved this audible book. The gloaming is a magical mythical fairy tale about love and loss. Kirsty is a brilliant story teller and narrator. I enjoyed every minute.

Enjoyed

Beautiful story, I felt every emotion listening to this. Such a vivid world was described, I could imagine the house, the garden, the sea, the library bus.
