Summary
"A coven of witches in the modern-day Outer Hebrides scrape out a pagan existence at a farmstead known as Cala. After ten years of relative harmony, fractures are starting to appear in the coven. Teenage Euna is beginning to hate its rigid hierarchy and its arbitary rules - the women may only speak in Gaelic, must perform certain rituals at given hours, and consume only what they grow or gather by their own hands. Sick of scavenged seaweed and thin soup, Euna one day goes to beg food from Aram, a local fisherman and migrant. She finds herself easily seduced by the first man she's ever seen, and entranced in turn by the power she holds over him. It's the first in a series of transgressions that sees her flee the yoke of the sisterhood to venture into the modern world..."--Provided by publisher
Summary
Cala, a stone farmhouse on the edge of Pullhair in the Outer Hebrides, is home to four women - witches the locals say - who scratch out a living on its land. But after ten years of relative harmony, fractures are beginning to appear among them. Eighteen-year-old Euna is tired of Cala's rigid hierarchy and arbitrary rules - the women may only speak in Gaelic, must wear plain dress, attend strict rituals and consume only what they grow or gather with their hands. Sick of scavenged seaweed and thin soup, Euna decides to go in search of a different way of living. Cala is a brilliantly original coming-of-age story from a new and powerful literary voice.
