Cass Hutt, bull rider, has nothing left to lose. The bulls should have killed him by now. Instead, it is his rodeo partner who has died, severing Cass's only ties to his world. With nothing and no one to hold him, Cass is led back East by the sudden arrival of a mysterious land deed, back to Scotch River, Nova Scotia, and the sketchy boyhood memories he left to die there.

In this dark and beautifully written novel, acclaimed author Linda Little introduces an unforgettable cast of characters bound together by the mysteries of blood and the burdens of memory. As it unveils its secrets, Scotch River deftly weaves a profound and deeply moving story of family love in all its ardour and the heartbreaking, indelible acts performed in its name.

Why are so many characters of Canadian fiction just so odd? And yet - we relate to them! Great read about a dysfunctional family - some of whom the reader will care about very deeply - and some with very particular talents.
