Oystercatchers, Paperback Book


The second novel from highly acclaimed young writer Susan Fletcher, author of the award-winning `Eve Green'Amy lies in a coma.

Her older sister, Moira, comes to her in the evenings, sits beside her in a green-walled hospital room.

Here, Moira confesses. She admits to her childhood selfishness which deeply hurt her family and to the self-imposed exile from the dramatic Welsh coast that had dominated and captivated her childhood; to her savagery at boarding school; to the wild, bitter and destructive heart that she carried into her adult life.

Moira knows this: that she's been a poor daughter, and a deceptive wife.

But it is as Amy lies half-dying that she sees the real truth: she's been a cruel sister, and it is this cruelty that has led them both here, to this hospital bed.A novel about trust, loss and loneliness, `Oystercatchers' is a love story with a profound darkness at its core.
