The Silver Darlings, Paperback Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The tale of lives won from a cruel sea and crueller landlords.

The dawning of the herring fisheries brought with it the hope of escape from the Highland Clearances, and this story paints a vivid picture of a community fighting against nature and history, and refusing to be crushed.

Review by

For lovers of the sea, of the Scottish people, of people who live close to the bone, of history, of language, of storycraft, of the human spirit--this book is deeply satisfying on so many levels.
