Pharos, Paperback / softback Book

Pharos Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

How could someone without memory be real at all? Without a memory what kind of a person was she? She was living in a limbo land. She was like a ghost.'A young woman is washed up onto the shores of a remote lighthouse island.

She does not know who she is or how she got there. She has no memory. The keeper of the lighthouse and his assistant take her in and feed and clothe her.

In classic ghost-story manner, she is not all what she seems and neither is the calm and peaceful island.Set at the time when the slave trade was at its height in the 1860s, Pharos is a vivid, expressionistic ghost story, a wonderful and haunting tale.
