Stormbred : Eleanor Walsh

Stormbred : Eleanor Walsh

£8.99

Eleanor Walsh is an assured storyteller. In Stormbred she reels the reader into the life of Ruby, a young Cornish girl searching for connection – to the world and to others. Walsh explores with perception these themes of connection and disconnection, embedding them skilfully in both the form and the language of the novella. An exceptionally rewarding and immersive read.
~Johanna Robinson, author of Homing

The search for home is a powerful theme in Stormbred, Eleanor Walsh’s extraordinary second novella-in-flash. With a backdrop of the 1990s war in Bosnia, and the displacement of thousands of people, Walsh focuses on Ruby, a troubled and brave young woman from a struggling Cornish farming family who has been mysteriously injured. This a gripping story, written vividly, with great heart and with many layers of meaning pertinent to today’s world. Right from the beginning chapter, it’s impossible not to feel deeply affected by Ruby’s plight and that of the other characters, including the sheep. Read Stormbred to be reminded of how fragile life is, and how resourceful people are.
~Jude Higgins, author of The Chemist’s House
