By (author) Clio Gray
Albania and Montenegro 1839, a setting of beauty and desolation. A land where centuries of bitter hatreds, atrocities and merciless revenge endlessly repeat themselves and simple lives are always in danger.
Enter the Pfiffmaklers, a group of travelling entertainers, on their way to visit the Black Madonna of Montenegro when they stumble across the remnants of a massacre.
Only one survivor remains, a little child who has seen too much. She captures the hearts of the kindly Pfiffmaklers, who take her with them away from danger. Or so they think.
Clio Gray began as an award winning short story writer and quickly progressed to becoming a novelist.
Booker nominated & Bailey’s longlisted, described as a master of atmosphere and sensuousness. She has had many books published, including the Stroop Quartet & the Scottish Mystery series.
Originally from Yorkshire, Gray has been living in the Scottish Highlands for almost thirty years. Her home, her place, and very grateful to be where she has finally landed. She lives with her three dogs, half a ton of books, and would not choose to be anywhere else. Scotland her rest and her salvation.
