Presbyterian minister John has broken off from the Scottish church.  He needs money and takes a job from a wealthy landowner to clear the only inhabitant off a remote Scottish Island. Ivar is the last of his family and his community to try and eke out a living on the island.  Forced together, the two men without common background or language forge a friendship.  Spare, beautiful and big hearted, this is one of my favorite books so far this year.
