Summary
On the icy St. Hauda's Islands, winged miniature livestock fly about the bogs and a mysterious creature is rumored to turn everything it sees to white. Stranger still is the condition of Ida MacLaird, a young woman who is slowly turning to glass. Photographer Midas Crook, a bitter young man who only wishes to be left alone, unwittingly begins to fall in love with Ida, and, on learning of her ailment, Midas embarks on a desperate quest to save her.
Critique
This unusual love story has an original premise and is set in a memorable and fantastic imaginary world. Beautifully written, this debut novel will have readers eager for Shaw's next effort.
