Evie Wyld’s The Bass Rock
Today’s episode features Evie Wyld discussing her latest novel The Bass Rock
Evie is the London based author of the Miles Franklin award winning novel All the Birds Singing. Today Evie is joining me to discuss her debut novel The Bass Rock.
The Bass Rock
The Bass Rock weaves together three narratives across the centuries exploring the pervasive violence that women must live with daily. The novel opens on a scene of a child and her mother. Together they walk along a beach, unaware they are about to make a gruesome discovery. We then meet Vivian arriving in town late at night to catalogue the estate of her grandmother Ruth. In post war Scotland Ruth arrives at her new home, unsure of her place and her role in the lives of her adopted children. While centuries earlier Sarah must flee her village after she is charged with witchcraft and faces brutality at the hands of the townsfolk and burning at the stake.
