A sweeping novel from critically-acclaimed author James Robertson, displaying centuries of change in the atmospheric Scottish highlands How do our roots in the land define us? Hidden in the breath-taking mountains of wild Scotland, Glen Conach is the home of secrets and stories, of fables and folklore. Over hundreds of years, three lives are woven together. In ancient Britain, the hermit Saint Conach performs impossible miracles, which survive as legend in 'The Book of Glen Conach'. Generations later in the nineteenth century, the book is rediscovered by charlatan Charles Gibb, who hustles his way into the big house at the heart of the village. In the present-day, young Lachie whispers to Maja of ghosts he has seen in the glen. Reflecting back on her long life, Maja believes him, as she has some ghosts of her own. From best-selling author James Robertson, News of the Dead is a captivating examination of the distance between the stories we tell of ourselves and the way in which we are remembered.
