An imaginative, intriguing and dark fairytale. After many years Doctor Victor Hoppe returns to the small village he grew up in. His return after an absence of many years generates a lot of interest - and suspicion - as he is accompanied by three triplets, all of whom share the same physical deformity as the doctor - a hare lip. These children are very quiet and are rarely seen in the village. But with time, and a series of apparently miraculous cures and tales of the wife he lost, the doctor begins to win the villagers over. He hires an ex schoolmistress, Charlotte, to look after the children. But the longer she works with the doctor, the more she begins to suspect that the children - and the doctor - aren't what they seem...

Women's lives are at the center of this stunning collection of short stories by the writer The New Yorker says "provides unexpected delights....Questions and answers alike shine with intelligence and an almost ninteenth-century concern for ideals." Though Sara Maitland's interests are as varied as the people who inhabit her stories, there is a common theme to this work that extols risk taking over safety. Acrobats, women warriors, a girl who wants to become a garden, a long-distance runner, housewives and mothers, and a reformed sixteenth-century conquistador are among the characters revealed in this dazzling collection. By turns elegant and simple, erotic and elegiac, the stories draw on classical mythology, folktales, inexplicable accidents of history, and disquieting experiences of the supernatural. And, as Ann Beattie has writen of Sara Maitland's wise and magical fiction, "it speaks to today's reader in a voice that is irresistible." Familiar names from literature--Gretel, Eurydice of the green fields, the shepherd Prince Endymion, Lady Artemis-commingle with contemporary characters called David, Meg, and Liz, who desperately seek love and fulfillment and frequently have babies when they can't get what they want. Close by is the echo of Mary Magdalene, teaching us about endurance and perserverance in a voice rich with the experiences of the sex object and the "true-love dichotomy." The author suggests: "She must have thought the crucifixion a bit mad too." Sara Maitland never holds back; instead, she invites us again and again to a place of risks, and we enter, "not because we must, but because we will." And when you are about to lose heart, you meet Caroline, who has learned what it is to be strong, how it feels to be free of fear, how it feels to be totally herself: "Then she looked at Richard and he was smiling, not pityingly, not even kindly, but with open admiration."

The Angel Maker is a supernatural horror novella.Welcome to sleepy little Widow's Bay island, where nothing interesting ever happens, usually.In the midst of a violent storm which has cut off the island from the mainland, a young woman is found wandering in a near catatonic state with someone else's blood on her. It soon becomes apparent she may be the sole witness to a potentially supernatural attack. Despite the raging storm, a large area close by is inexplicably dry with the rain turning instantly to steam the moment it hits the ground.After returning to the spot later, the policeman who found the young woman comes across a blood soaked man whose clothes have been burnt from his body. At first the policeman thinks he may be the victim of a lightning strike. But on closer examination the man is found to have many deep fresh scars carved into his back. The scars have a distinct pattern to them which link the attack to the seven year hunt for a serial killer.With the island cut off from the mainland due to the worsening weather, this leaves two police officers, a doctor and a volunteer lifeboat man trapped in a storm battered lifeboat station with the only witness to the crime and thus a link to the possible identity of the killer. A killer who must still be on the island.And that's when life on sleepy little Widow's Bay takes a turn for the surreal.
