Susan Fletcher’s fourth novel, The Silver Dark Sea, is unashamedly romantic. Championing hope, love and the transformative power of stories, it is set on Parla, one of a small group of fictitious, sparsely populated islands, which, with their puffins and sheep and imaginative folklore, recall the Orkneys.
