Looking for something to lose yourself in this summer? Evocative, compelling and crafted with a truly deft touch, Emma Timpany’s debut novella could be it.
Released this month on Fairlight Books, Travelling in the Dark tells the story of Sarah and her young son, returning to her home town in New Zealand to face the people, history and reflections that wait for her there.
Wild and beautiful in its vista but restrained, sensitive and oh so clever in its delivery, prepare to be fully immersed, your senses steadily saturated until you turn the last page and realise that Emma’s skill as a storyteller has left you gasping for air.
Travelling in the Dark is published by Fairlight Books, £7.99 available from Amazon and all good book shops.
Emma is also co-editor of Cornish Short Stories and can regularly be found sharing her work, or listening to others at festivals, reading nights and events across Cornwall and beyond.
