Scars on Sound
The past will hurt you, if you turn your back on it.
A village under the shadow of old magics. A book of poems that twists the minds of those who read it. A woman imprisoned by a poisonous love.
Grown from the dark soil of the British Folk Tradition, these stories ring with a half-remembered music of loss, haunting and revenge. From the nurse recalling her monstrous charges, to the woman with scarred hands who is warped by a power from the past, these are tales of civilisation falling away, of something older and more dangerous coming through.
With illustrations by Ruth Tucker, these lyrical, Gothic stories capture the horror that lies in the English landscape and the darkness of the human heart.
