Folk by Zoe Gilbert


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.

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.
