Claire Corbett’s novel ‘Watch over me’.
Corbett’s atmospheric landscape, with its eerie glacial light, its drifts of fog and explosives, wild geese and Sequestered Forest, is so vividly realised and starkly described, the cold and fog seem to creep beyond the page. For the struggling residents under military occupation, death comes “delivered from the sky”. Yet for Sylvie and her family, love persists in all its forms. – Mireille Juchau, author of The World Without Us
