'She's had this feeling before. This feeling of marking time. Of pressing her nose against a window and watching as everyone else lives their best lives.'

Isla Wintergreen has not seen her grandfather since she was seven, but when she unexpectedly inherits his cottage on the Isle of Skye, she cannot resist the opportunity to escape her purposeless life. As she slowly becomes a part of the island community, she learns more about the family she never really knew - from her estranged father, to her reclusive grandfather, and her intelligent but oppressed great-grandmother. Meanwhile, her mother Cathy reflects on her own past. Mother and daughter both hope to find new freedom - but can family patterns ever really be broken?

Told through the lives of four generations of Isla's family, all linked by their connection to water, 'Dancing in the Shallows' masterfully explores family relationships and generational inheritance.
