This is a gem of a yarn about a Cornish community divided by prejudice and secrets, all in the name of friendship and familial duty. Once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down again. And if you love Cornwall you'll love this - it captures the transient nature of seasonal life really well. It's not every day a book like this comes along, read it today!

First off Im a fan of Joolz. I bought in through New Model Army & started off with vinyl, saw her live reciting poetry & with Red Sky Coven, bought her poetry then the novels.
One thing you notice with Joolz is how much she understands human nature. Non of her characters are unblemished, all are striped down & you get a taste of how chilling we humans can be.
Set in Cornwall this is the story of beauty without conscience, obsession to the point of corruption. The story of surf, sand & total loss.
Once you pick up this book, like any by Joolz, you wont put it down. It is an absolute must
