Rose Leonard is on the run from her life. And her memories. And madness. Has she finally found a new life? Or just a different kind of death?...A passionate, off-beat love story set on the bleak and beautiful island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides. Shortlisted for the WAVERTON GOOD READ AWARD 2006Runner-up for PURE PASSION (North West Libraries' award promoting romantic fiction.) SYNOPSISHaunted by her turbulent past, Rose Leonard takes refuge in a remote island community where she cocoons herself in work, silence and solitude in a house by the sea. Life and new love are offered by friends, her estranged daughter and most of all Calum, a fragile younger man who has his own demons to exorcise. But does Rose, with her tenuous hold on sanity, have the courage to say "Yes" to life and put her past behind her?... * * * * *Praise for EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY..."I dropped everything to read it. Read it that very night, in fact. In one solid chunk. I had things to do, sleep to get, work to wake up for, and yet none of it mattered and nothing could tear me away from this breathtaking story... I've been dreaming of Scotland for the past several nights and I have this book to thank for it."ANGIEVILLE (US book blog)“The emotional power makes this reviewer reflect on how Charlotte and Emily Bronte might have written if they were living and writing now.” NORTHWORDS NOW“A book about madness, memory and mountaineering that defies categorisation. A love story filled with passion and paint-stripping honesty.” HIGHLANDS & ISLANDS ARTS JOURNAL“Lyrical, intriguing and haunting.” ISLA DEWAR (Women Talking Dirty)"Complex and important issues are played out in the windswept beauty of a Hebridean island setting, with a hero who is definitely in the Mr Darcy league!"www.ScottishReaders.net "What I most liked about it was the writer's evident love for fabric, handiwork of various kinds and the way she brings a whole landscape to life. I'm looking forward to her next."ADELE GERAS (Facing the Light)
