Christian  Buder - The Memory of the Island
 
 
 
 

 

An island, two deaths and an imminent, violent storm, wresting past occurrences from oblivion

When archaeologist Yann Schneider returns to the Brittany island he grew up on for his father's funeral, he is acutely aware of the shadows of his family past: traumatised as a child by the death of his mother Abigale in an accident, he realises twenty years later that behind his mother's death different powers were at work than he had supposed.

While a terrible storm is brewing, Yann finds out more about his own past, his truth and his fate and confronts the island inhabitants with their past and their guilt.

An impressive novel about the dark powers of love for all readers of Martin Suter and Pascal Mercier.

"An atmospherically dense story, powerful characters and an amazing plot."

Münchner Merkur
