The Fog Line - Carol Birch

Bloomsbury, 1989, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ.

Gloria's childhood ended the day she was raped and made pregnant. That's when the voices started inside her head; that's when the fog descended and the drifting began.Caught between the guilty secret of her past and the void of her present, Gloria struggles to hang onto her dreams. She meets David - charming, romantic, an aspiring poet, but weak in a way that is to prove fatal. With Gloria's daughter Kit they wander the country. Over the years the uneasy triangle reaches breaking point. David drinks, his poetry goes unpublished, and he clings to Gloria with a cloying dependency. Kit has found some measure of security in Scotland and doesn't want to leave. Tired of living on the edge and clinging to the fringes of other people's lives,Gloria moves on, alone, to a new beginning. But the voices become insistent and Gloria must free her past.
