The Cast Iron Shore
This portrait of a woman is also a study of the second half of the twentieth century. A first novel, it combines the personal and political in a story about Sybil, who is attracted to the edges of things by a sense of not belonging.

Review: The Cast Iron ShoreUser Review - Kim Yates - Goodreads
Hmm some great writing particularly in the first parts but then I sort of drifted off and lost interest in the main character and it was a chore to finish. I think the first part is brilliant with great observations about the fur trade, ports and restlessness and war. Read full review
