The Earth Hums in B Flat by Mari Strachan

The Earth Hums in B Flat

Mari Strachan

This is a book to be slowly savoured. A story of secrets and misunderstandings - I recognised Gwenni's world immediately. A funny and touching story which I loved very much.

Extract

I take the kettle into the scullery. The green distemper on the walls is beginning to peel and flake, shaping faces with sly eyes and mouths tight with secrets. There are new faces there every day. I try not to see them watching me.
