Merrick’s life is a wild goose chase. Literally.

‘It’s that story of an immortal half-man, half-barnacle goose you know you’ve been waiting for.’

Merrick is on his way to Islay in Scotland to join 35,000 fellow barnacle geese at their annual gathering. Delayed by a sudden fall from the sky, he sustains his first wrist injury in three centuries and has to take a boat.

On the remote Isle of Scarba, just a stone’s throw away, Gladys awaits answers. What is the centuries-old secret that rules her destiny?

Lucy Colwyn wants to go to Scarba to die; if she can only get there unscathed first.

Eminent neurologist, Dr. Britten, receives miraculous news: a dying patient is cured. Now he has no choice but to abandon everything and track her down before she does the unthinkable. But the journey won’t be easy, as three familiar old ladies have other, rather unorthodox agendas.

The Queen of The Hebrides leaves for Islay loaded with strangers. By the time the ship’s journey reaches its conclusion, some of the passengers are on their way to reaching another: that they’re more connected than they could ever have imagined.

A Scottish fantasy laced with folklore and dark humour, The Advice Bucket is the story of an immortal half-man, half-goose that you know you’ve been waiting for.

From the author of International Best-Sellers:‘The New Mrs D’ and ‘I Hate That You Bloody Left Me.’

‘If you want a breath of fresh air, read Heather Hill. She writes wonderfully and warmly about friendships and about life. And because you see yourself in her words, it feels like you’ve curled up to chat with an old friend. Highly recommend her gorgeous books.’ – Louise Beech, Author.
