beloved family home, life is not as idyllic as it seems. Caroline and David's marriage, scarred by a tragic loss many years before, is back in the spotlight as David's retirement is thrust
Meanwhile, their three daughters, Fiona, Deborah and Vonnie, have brought with them not just husbands and children, but crises and conflicts of their own. As
the holiday unfolds, it starts to become clear that the ties that bind the Haldanes together are in danger of unravelling entirely. A moving and compelling portrayal of a modern family with
all the warmth, pain, humour, anger and love that come with being related.

Описание: Featherstone: an attractive, small rural town serving outlying estates, bank, post office, school...At first glance, Kirsty Gunn's small country town is like any
other - a closely connected community bound by habit and familiarity. Yet as we're invited to spend the weekend in Featherstone we come to realise there's something more to this place
that unsettles us, something intense and intimate that goes deep into the lives of the people who live here and bares open their hearts...Featherstone is a novel about memory and
need, forgetting and faith, a story of people - of their hopes and faiths and disappointments, of desire and the way desire can go rotten inside - but above all it offers an insight to the
ways in which all of us deceive and believe in one another, in how we love.
