Zoe Gilbert - Folk

Swirling Cleft

Duration: 15 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 ExtraLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 Extra

Gad's strange mother, Sil, is not from Neverness, and may not even be her natural mother.

When her baby sister falls ill, Gad is sent into forbidden territory to find an unusual remedy.

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.
