About the book

‘BEAUTIFUL AND BRUTAL…A BREATHTAKING DEBUT’ JOANNA CANNON

‘AN ATMOSPHERIC SLOW BURN…WITH A SENSE OF FOREBODING THAT GROWS WITH EACH PAGE’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

‘ATMOSPHERIC AND COMPELLING’ KATE SAWYER, author of the Costa-shortlisted The Stranding

A beautifully written atmospheric story of trauma, grief and redemption, Still Water is a debut from a bright new voice in literary fiction.

When Jane Douglas returns to the Shetland Islands, she thinks she has escaped the dark shadows of her childhood. She carves out a simple life on the bleak, windswept island, working at the salmon fishery and spending quiet evenings at home. And for the first time in her life, she’s happy.

Then the body of Jane’s long-missing mother is found in a flooded quarry. Her mother disappeared when Jane was a teenager, following the death of Jane’s baby brother.

Jane has spent her life running from her past, living in fear that she has inherited her mother’s demons.

Now, Jane must face what actually happened on that fateful, tragic day twenty years ago…

‘A HAUNTING STORY…TOLD WITH COMPASSION AND EVEN TENDERNESS’ KATIE MUNNIK

‘INTENSE, UNFLINCHING, HONEST… BEAUTIFULLY TOLD’ LUCIE MCKNIGHT HARDY, author of Dead Relatives

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
