Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan

Actually this post immediately follows within minutes of my last due to my clicking on the publish button by accident so if you'll just pretend this runs on I'll be grateful.

I have just finished reading Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan - for those of you in Britain it is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island there - and it was a great read. Once again Margo Lanagan has produced a haunting and fascinating novel. It's dark and poignant, full of intriguing characters and placed in a beautifully realised desolate setting where you can almost smell and taste the waves as they crash on the rocky shores. I suspect it will stay with me for a long time.
