Folk

by Zoe Gilbert

Myths, rumours and folklore converge and unfold into a series of haunting tales narrated by the various residents of Neverness. This book certainly ticks the boxes for uniqueness and imaginative writing, where ordinary folk become rather extraordinary.

Extract

Each has a tale of woe, told at the bard house, meant to keep children and fools away. One has a drowned tower in the sea at its mouth, which has gold buried in it but also a dreadful curse. Another is where folk say a water bull comes up from the sea and steals pretty girls away.
