It is 1833, and fiery Edinburgh widow Isla is dying. Ready to meet her maker and eager to reunite  with the love of her life, she is not afraid of passing, but Isla’s death is only the beginning of a series of otherworldly adventures that she must undertake on her quest to find her husband. As a spirit, Isla must deal with grave-robbers, ancient mysteries and earth bound ghosts in order to protect her granddaughter and locate her love. Culminating in the glowing bonfires of a lawless and blistering Samain, when the bold dead walk among the living, Isla Rising ranges from the arcane to the

humorous, as the wild widow stalks through the shadowy depths of Edinburgh’s homes and cemeteries, pubs and plots.
