This is one of four books I bought from the Martin House Children's Hospice charity shop in Harrogate this morning. I don't know why chose it, I just did!

From Amazon Editorial Review: "Featherstone is the story of the mysterious disappearance from an isolated town in Scotland of a young woman whose absence still reverberates in the lives of everyone whose life she touched.
When Sonny Johanssen looks up from his flower bed, he is sure that he has just seen the impossible. And yet he feels her: his niece, Francie, has come home. He’s not the only one who senses her presence. Across town, Ray Weldon, Francie’s long-suffering high school sweetheart, is anxiously scouring their old haunts, convinced that she has finally returned. But has she really come home, or is her presence some kind of resurrection in the minds of those who love her?
It soon becomes clear that Featherstone is not a traditional tale of small-town life, but that the enigmatic Francie is a catalyst for a different, deeper story. Her homecoming disturbs the inhabitants of this community, unraveling a sense of security and stability and turning inward people’s hopes and dreams — with dangerous but ultimately regenerative consequences."

All the action, or inaction, takes places over one weekend in an unidentified small town where not a lot seems to be happening - but is happening beautifully, in lyrical flowing language, language that has the reader flowing along with its flow, although you can't always be sure where it's taking you - or why . . . slowly the atmosphere thickens, becoming claustrophic, eerie, with a hint of menace or threat in the air . . .
Recommended.
