Hame, n. Scottish form of `home': a valued place regarded as a refuge or place of origin

After her relationship breaks down, Mhairi McPhail dismantles her life in New York and moves with her 9-year-old daughter, Agnes, to the remote Scottish island of Fascaray.

Mhairi has been commissioned to write the biography of Grigor McWatt, the late Bard of Fascaray. But who was the cantankerous Grigor McWatt? Despite his international reputation, details of his past are elusive.

As Mhairi struggles to adapt to her new life she begins to unearth the astonishing secret history of the poet regarded by many as the custodian of Fascaray's - and Scotland's - soul.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Intricately spun... this searching and eloquent novel muses on identity, love and belonging." - Mail on Sunday

"Richly textured... The emotional complexity of the writing matches the landscape of the island and its surroundings." - Literary Review

"There are joyful winks and allusions everywhere... an affectionate rebuke to Scots nationalists who pretend that questions of national identity are straightforward... 'hame' isn't so much where you're born, as where you hing yer bunnet" - Daily Telegraph

"Bristling with life and passion and wit." - The Herald
