This is an auction for FEATHERSTONE, by Kirsty Gunn.

"Gunn's third novel is written in the hauntingly evocative prose that has won her previous titles--Rain (1995) and The Keepsake (1997)--both British and American acclaim. Here, she explores the effects of loss and memory on the people of Featherstone, a tiny village in Scotland. When Francie, a beautiful and spirited young girl, disappears from Featherstone, she leaves behind her high-school sweetheart and the aunt and uncle who raised her. Those who loved her find themselves frozen in a kind of suspended animation, unable to fill the place she held in their lives. Then, years later, the people of Featherstone begin to see her again--her uncle looks up from tending his garden to find Francie watching him; her boyfriend senses Francie's presence at the river where they used to meet. Real or imagined, Francie's reappearance awakens long dormant pain and disturbs the fragile equilibrium of the village. Gunn delicately weaves the dreams and memories of Featherstone's inhabitants into a spellbinding meditation on the dark places love and grief can lead us."
