Ancestral truths by Sara Maitland( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There were three possible reasons given for the disappearance of the two hikers on Mount Nyangani: the treacherous terrain and climate, the banditos armados; the forgiving spirit called Chirikudzi. In David's case there was a fourth - that Clare might have killed him."--BOOK JACKET. "Unable to remember exactly what happened on the mountain in Zimbabwe and trying to come to terms with the loss of her hand in the accident, Clare is taken home to Scotland where her large, loving, questioning, and uncomfortably acute family become almost unbearable. She had wanted David dead, but did that mean she had killed him? Her mother's High Church concern, Anni's sharp-tongued radicalism, saintly Felicity's internal fury, and her deaf niece Alice's fascination with the prosthetic hand seem at first to distract from Clare's problems, until the aristocratic family's pieties pierce her cocoon of post-traumatic amnesia."--BOOK JACKET. "Family resentments flare and fade, divisions fester and heal, and as Clare uncovers buried fears, she comes to understand that the real question about the accident on Mount Nyangani is less what she has forgotten than why."--BOOK JACKET. "Intricate in design, disturbing in its explorations of mind and spirit, and with a surprising twist at the end, Ancestral Truths employs a striking narrative voice to explore the shifting relations between belief and truth, love and desire, to reveal that beauty and danger walk hand in hand. Sara Maitland summons her knowledge of theology, mysticism, mathematics, and human nature to give this deeply perceptive novel its wit and cohesive richness. As Ms. Maitland's characters gradually recognize the inseparability of their strengths and weaknesses, the author of Three Times Table raises her art to a new pitch of excitement and originality."--BOOK JACKET

Gossip from the forest : the tangled roots of our forests and fairytales by Sara Maitland( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fairytales are one of our earliest and most vital cultural forms, and forests one of our most ancient and primal landscapes. Both evoke a similar sensation in us - we find them beautiful and magical, but also spooky, sometimes horrifying. In this fascinating book, Maitland argues that the two forms are intimately connected: the mysterious secrets and silences, gifts and perils of the forests were both the background and the source of fairytales. Yet both forests and fairy stories are at risk and their loss deprives us of our cultural lifeblood. Maitland visits forests through the seasons, from the exquisite green of a beechwood in spring, to the muffled stillness of a snowy pine wood in winter. She camps with her son Adam, whose beautiful photographs are included in the book; she takes a barefoot walk through Epping Forest with Robert Macfarlane; she walks with a mushroom expert through an oak wood, and with a miner through the Forest of Dean. Maitland ends each chapter with a unique, imaginitive re-telling of a fairystory. Written with Sara's wonderful clarity and conversational grace, Gossip from the Forest is a magical and unique blend of nature writing, history and imaginative fiction
