What they're saying about 'Call of the Undertow'
10 September 2013
'mysterious, deeply touching and makes enchantment feel very close to daily life’
‘...seductively pulls the reader into the deeper more dangerous currents of the human heart. Emotions ebb and flow along with the tide, in language clear and crisp as sea air.’
'Linda Cracknell's Caithness rises up off the page and takes form around us... Its light and skies, rocky shores and wheeling, screaming gulls, huddled villages and craggy beaches, its grave, austere beauty... Reading this book is like being there.'
'Linda Cracknell’s Call Of the Undertow is one of the most haunting and evocative novels I’ve read in a long time. Her characters are compelling and completely believable, while her sensitive, lyrical depiction of the natural (and supernatural) world shows her to be among Scotland’s finest contemporary writers.'
