9781842820599: Heartland: A Novel

A man tries to build for his future by reconnecting with his past, leaving behind the ruins of the life he has lived. Iain Martin hopes that by returning to his Hebridean roots and embarking on a quest to reconstruct the ancient family home, he might find new purpose. But as Iain begins working on he old blackhouse, he uncovers a secret from the past, which forces him to question everything he ever thought to be true. Who can he turn to without betraying those to whom he is closest? His ailing mother, his childhood friend and his former love are both the building - and stumbling - blocks to his new life. Where do you seek sanctuary when home has changed and will never be the same again?

About the Author:

This is the first novel from STV journalist and newsreader John MacKay -- John presents Scotland Today (6-6.30pm Mon-Fri on STV) -- and forms the first part in a trilogy. Born in Glasgow in 1965, he has drawn on the oral traditions of his Hebridean background to write The Road Dance -- a novel that sears itself onto the reader's mind, a novel you can't not respond to.

Review:

Praise for The Road Dance '[MacKay] has captured time, place and atmosphere superbly...' MEG HENDERSON 'a gripping plot that subtly twists and turns, vivid characterisation, and a real sense of time and tradition, this is an absorbing, powerful first novel.' SCOTS MAGAZINE 'Powerful, shocking, heartbreaking DAILY MAIL
