Scottish antiquarian Gilbert travels to British Columbia to research an early settler he believes may have been his runaway grandfather.
Here, he strikes up an unexpected connection with a woman he meets on the plane.
Beautifully descriptive and almost lyrical in parts, I was transfixed by the vibrant scenery.
If you like short, punchy chapters Jamieson’s meandering style will not be for you, and with multi-layered plots and complex characters it required intense focus, but this was still an absorbing and pleasant read.
