Om Summer of the Bear
With her fifth novel, critically acclaimed writer and journalist Bella Pollen takes readers into the private dynamics of a family grappling with the loss of father and husband in Scotlands Outer Hebrides, where between elemental beauty and utter bleakness, strange forces are at play.In 1980 Germany, under Cold War tension, a mole is suspected in the British Embassy. When the clever diplomat Nicky Fleming dies suddenly and suspiciously, its convenient to brand him the traitor. But was his death an accident, murder, or suicide? As the government digs into Nickys history, his wife, Letty, relocates with her three children to a remote Scottish island hoping to salvage their family. But the isolated shores of her childhood retreat only intensify their distance, and it is Lettys brilliant and peculiar youngest child, Jamie, who alone holds on to the one thing hes sure of: his father has promised to return and he was a man who never broke a promise.Exploring the island, Jamie and his teenaged sisters discover that a domesticated brown bear has been marooned on shore, hiding somewhere among the seaside caves. Jamie feels that the bear may have a strange connection to his father, and as he seeks the truth, his fathers story surfaces unexpected ways. Bella Pollen has an uncanny ability to capture the unnoticeable moments in which families grow quiet. A novel about the corrosive effects of secrets and the extraordinary imagination of youth, The Summer of the Bear is Pollens most ambitious and affecting book yet.
