    To The Lighthouse

    £8.99
    Jenni Fagan says:

    Her evocation of the Hebrides as a place in which the sea is ‘stretched like silk across the bay,’ earns its place here, her ability to move between characters, location and landscape is something that reminds me of walking around Edinburgh in all seasons.

    Virginia Woolf’s use of stream of consciousness and free indirect is an influence. I understood it more after reading How Late It Was, How Late by James Kelman too as he uses it to such a high standard.

    I too have a love for Skye and all Scottish Islands, so this novel takes me there. Luckenbooth starts on an unnamed island, a tiny one, far North, where Jessie MacRae (my protagonist) was raised.

    Woolf's textured prose invites us into each of the characters' minds as we follow them on a winding, decade-long journey to the lighthouse.

    Mr and Mrs Ramsay and their eight children have always holidayed at their summer house in Skye, surrounded by family friends. But as time passes, bringing with it war and death, the summer home stands empty until one day, many years later, the family return to make the long-postponed visit to the lighthouse.
