Helen Dunmore takes us into the harsh, sensuous world of endless winters and midnight sun in this collection of short stories. Tense, moving and mysterious, the stories explore the pain woven into human relationships, the ambivalence of filial love,and the dangerous lure of sensuality, themes which echo between stories and linger in the mind. "An electrifying and original talent" - the Guardian "Exquisite writing adorns every page, marvellous flashes of poetic insight" - Sunday Telegraph

From AudioFile:

The stories read herein exemplify the genre of the literary watercolor. In pale, delicately drawn scenes of modern life, evocative and elusive, not much really happens, but what does transpire somehow contains significance. Carole Boyd reads in mellifluous BBC diction, drawing out the china-vase prettiness of the lines and displaying a considerable gift for character voices. Unfortunately, her dynamic range is so wide that if one cranks up the volume to hear her pianissimo, one is blasted by the next fortissimo. It is practically impossible to follow her while driving, even with windows shut against outside noise. Y.R. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
