‘Raw passionate hallucinatory. Reading All Rivers Run Free was to be lured by an edgy siren voice of fierce womanhood’ Rachel Holmes

A woman on the edge of the sea finds a girl on the edge of life.

Brittle but not yet broken Ia Pendilly ekes out a fierce life in a caravan on the coast of Cornwall. In years of living with Bran – her embattled battering cousin and common law husband – she’s never yet had her own baby. So when she discovers the waif washed up on the shore Ia takes the risk and rescues her. And the girl in turn will rescue something in Ia – bringing back a memory she’s lost giving her the strength to escape and leading her on a journey downriver.

It will take her into the fringes of a society she’s shunned collapsed around its own isolation. It will take her through a valley ravaged by floods into a world not too far from reckoning. It will take her in search of her sister and the dark remembrance of their parting. It will take her break her remake her in the shapes of freedom.

Natasha Carthew is a startling new voice from beyond the limits of common urban experience. She tells a tale of marginalisation and motherhood in prose that crashes like waves on rocks; rough breathless and beautiful.
