5.0 out of 5 stars "I was their only gift", 23 Oct. 2013
By 
This review is from: Call of the Undertow (Paperback)
"I was their only gift." So says Trothan Gilbertson about his parents.Trothan is a strange, friendless, 'otherworldly' nine year old boy, who meets Maggie,a cartographer who is trying to escape her past.
She has rented a cottage near Dunnet Head, the most Northerly tip of Scotland, seeking the isolation she craves for, but however hard she tries, their lives become strangely entwined.

Call of the Undertow is beautifully written. The story unfolds with an almost ethereal quality, which hooked me in from the first page. It is rich in descriptive phrases, evoking the solitary nature and ruggedness of the northern coast of Scotland.The characters are so believable that I was sorry when it was finished.
Brush up on your knowledge of folklore. Highly recommended.
