The Summer Of The Bear by Bella Pollen

untitledThe Summer Of The Bear by Bella Pollen. Recommended by Nic (Reader Development Team and Bury Archive).

It is the summer of 1980. A tamed brown bear finds himself tempted by the lure of freedom and the wild open sea. Meanwhile a grieving, broken family arrive on a windswept island in the Outer Hebrides, looking for the time and space to understand the strange, bewildering events that led to the loss of their husband and father.

‘This is a beautiful and sensitive handling of a familie’s attempts to deal with their huge loss. Written with warmth and humour; you are taken on a journey, both geographically and emotionally. The unbelievable becomes believable as we share in a son’s unshakable faith in his father.’ Nic.
