A novel of profound emotional force - the follow-up to the prizewinning and highly acclaimed After the Fire, A Still Small Voice by an author named as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 2013.
 
Jake Whyte is the sole resident of an old farmhouse on an unnamed British island, a place of ceaseless rains and battering winds. Itís just her, her untamed companion, Dog, and a flock of sheep. Which is how she wanted it to be. But something is coming for the sheep Ė every few nights it picks one off, leaves it in rags.
 
It could be anything. There are foxes in the woods, a strange boy and a strange man, rumours of an obscure, formidable beast. And there is Jakeís unknown past, perhaps breaking into the present, a story hidden thousands of miles away and years ago, in a landscape of different colour and sound, a story held in the scars that stripe her back.
