    The twelve stories in Letting Go take us on a journey through landscape, language and turbulent times, from the mid-19th century to the present day, and into the future. Stevenson's array of characters from many walks of life and nationalities - including a traveller, a wood carver, chicken farm workers, a nurse, an architect and a magician - meet and part, some becoming reacquainted.


    Themes exploring identity, creativity and the environment, echo and connect throughout the different narratives, sometimes carried in snatches of song. The author leads us outward from her native Scottish Borders to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Gaidhealtachd, south to England, across the Atlantic to Apartheid South Africa and, finally, to the melting Arctic.
