              Synopsis

              The lives of three women weave together across four centuries in the dazzling new book from Evie Wyld, a Granta Best of Young British NovelistRuth, in the aftermath of the Second World War, is navigating a new marriage and the strange waters of the local community.Six decades later, Viv, still mourning the death of her father, is cataloguing Ruth’s belongings in the now-empty house.As each woman’s story unfolds, it becomes increasingly clear that their choices are circumscribed, in ways big and small, by the men who seek to control them. But in sisterhood there is also the possibility of survival and a new way of life. Intricately crafted and compulsively readable, The Bass Rock burns bright with anger and heart – a devastating indictment of the violence that men have inflicted on women throughout the ages.
