'Taboo seizes and will not release.' Robert Macfarlane One may as well begin, 'Once upon a time...' Except this is no fairytale. Kim Scott's powerfully charged, award-winning novel thrusts a young woman centre-stage in a vicious drama that has been playing in her family for generations - an act of extraordinary violence, and an act of extraordinary reconciliation, separated by two hundred years.
