Product description


An evocative and fast-moving tale set in Skye and the West Highlands before moving to Canada, 'No Safe Anchorage', like its title, swirls with danger. It invokes the spirit of Robert Louis Stevenson whose childhood it portrays. With its sharp use of dialogue and tight, concise description, it also conjures up that writer in other ways, creating an adventure story that is as breathless and exciting as some of that nineteenth century novelist's work.--Donald S Murray

'No Safe Anchorage' is a great second novel by Liz MacRae Shaw. Set in the mid-nineteenth century in and around the Isle of Skye, and moving on to Canada, we follow the life of a naval officer, Tom Masters, a square peg in a round hole. His childhood experiences, slowly revealed, loss of a close friend and awakening sexuality make for a very strong central character. Neatly woven in is part of the life of Robert Louis Stevenson who might be described as a similarly round peg within his lighthouse building family.--Linda Henderson, author and editor

About the Author

Liz Macrae Shaw studied History at Oxford University; her passion is the turbulent nineteenth century. Liz lives with her husband and two standard poodles on the Isle of Skye. She finds inspiration for her historical fiction from Highland culture, family history and the stark but beautiful landscape of the island.
