- Set on the beautiful island of North Uist this book captures the spirit of life in an enclosed island community and the impact it has on a troubled newcomer. Rose has suffered mental illness but is working on a strategy to cope, moving to a small community where, in peace and quiet, she can work on her textile art. She thinks herself emotionally free after the hurt caused by a previous long term relationship, but that is until she meets Calum the poet.
Their joint stories are woven against a backcloth drawn from mountains, poetry, colour and fabric.
Transita books reflect the lives of mature women: contemporary women with rich and interesting stories to tell, stories that explore the truths and desires that colour their lives.
