The Dark Ship
Anne MacLeod
Published by 11/19
ISBN 1-903238-27-7

Spanning three generations and two World Wars this is an immensely moving tale of a close-knit community on the Isle of Lewis. A central love triangle binds together
a complex mixture of love, tragedy, music and poetry; and is brought to life by a varied group of strongly drawn characters.
I can't praise The Dark Ship too highly.

    It's hard to believe that this is Anne MacLeod's first novel.Once I was within a hundred pages of the end I couldn't go to bed until I'd finished it.
