A Winter Guest

A handsome stranger arrives in the village to the considerable interest of the women. Read by Samantha Spiro.

A handsome red-haired stranger called Redwing arrives in the village, to the considerable interest of the women of Neverness.

Clotha, a widow, takes him as her lover, but discovers you can have too much of a good thing.

Zoe Gilbert’s debut novel ‘Folk’ conjures up a series of dark and bewitching tales from a remote mythical island – Neverness - a place ripe with shadowy secrets and magic, and where its villagers’ lives are entwined with nature: its enchantments, seductions and dangers.

Read by Samantha Spiro.
