Book Launch: Salt & Skin by Eliza Henry-Jones
Thursday 7th September 2023
19:00 at Waterstones, Glasgow - Argyle Street
Salt & Skin is the mesmeric tale of Luda, a photographer, and her two teenagers, Darcy and Min, who leave Australia and land in the Northern Isles of Scotland to make a new life. Darcy and Min forge connections, making friends of neighbours, discovering both longing and dangerous compulsions. But Luda – fallible, obsessive, distracted – comes up hard against suspicion. The persecution and violence that drove the island’s historic witch trials still simmers today, in isolated homes and church buildings, and where folklore and fact intertwine. Salt & Skin is a compelling and magically immersive novel about a family on the edge and a community ensnared by history, that gathers to an unforgettable ending.
