Island House

WIN A COPY OF THE ISLAND HOUSE

Posie Graeme-Evans is best known to Australians as the creator and producer of the hit series, McLeod’s Daughters.

However, when it comes to writing, Graeme-Evans has a penchant for historical rather than contemporary drama and in The Island House she has created both an archeological puzzle and a love story that spans centuries.

A snippet from Meredith Jaffe’s review:

By 800AD, the island of Findnar is home to a small Christian community of nuns and monks trying to set up a religious centre.

Before them, the local Picts visited the island to source valuable foods and built a circle of stones where they worshipped the Sun god Cruach perform their religious ceremonies. Now the two peoples live in uncomfortable proximity but they are both united by their fear of the raiding Viking armies, whose sackings of local villages means years of poverty and rebuilding for those affected.
