The remote island village of Neverness is a world far from our time and place. The villagers' lives are inseparable from nature and its enchantments. Verlyn Webbe, born with a wing for an arm, unfurls his feathers in defiance of past shame; Plum is snatched by a water bull and dragged to his lair; little Crab Skerry takes his first run through the gorse-maze; Madden sleepwalks through violent storms, haunted by horses and her father's wishes. As the tales of this island community interweave over the course of a generation, their earthy desires, resentments, idle gossip and painful losses create a staggeringly original world.

It's part-myth, part-allegory, wholly wonderful.” THE BEST FICTION OF 2018 OBSERVER “Wild, domestic, powered by elements both natural and weird, Folk hauls us into a past where there's room for magic and for mystery.
