Emilia treasures pretty, girlish things and longs to escape from the confines of the little town. Captivated by the romances she reads in magazines, she dreams of finding love in the bustle and glamour of the city. Luzia, scarred by a childhood accident that has left her with a deformed arm, knows that for her, real life can not be romantically embroidered, and so she finds solace in her sewing and in the secret prayers to the saints she believes once saved her life.
But when Luzia is abducted by a gang of rebel bandits, the sisters' lives diverge in ways they never imagined. Whilst Luzia learns to survive in the unforgiving Brazilian outland, discovering love in the most unexpected of places, Emilia meets the son of a wealthy doctor who seems to offer her everything she has always desired. But for the innocent dreamer, the excitement of her escape to the city is soon overshadowed by disillusion and loneliness.
As she learns how to navigate the treacherous waters of Brazilian high society, the bandits' campaign against the land-owning 'Colonels' intensifies, and when a price is placed upon Luzia's head Emilia realises she must risk everything in order to save her sister.

Henry Prize Story Collection Size: Harper Collins Publishers, UK. Book Description: The second novel from highly acclaimed young writer Susan Fletcher, author of the award-winning 'Eve Green': Amy lies in a coma. Her older sister, Moira, comes to her in the evenings, sits beside her in a green-walled hospital room. Here, Moira confesses. She admits to her childhood selfishness which deeply hurt her family and to the self-imposed exile from the dramatic Welsh coast that had dominated and captivated her childhood; to her savagery at boarding school; to the wild, bitter and destructive heart that she carried into her adult life.
Moira knows this: that she's been a poor daughter, and a deceptive wife. But it is as Amy lies half-dying that she sees the real truth: she's been a cruel sister, and it is this cruelty that has led them both here, to this hospital bed.
Motifs, real and dream-like, of the sea suffuse the book. Oystercatchers is the work of a seriously talented young author in possession of one of the most poetic and original voices working now. If she can write at this level in her 20s, her potential is breathtaking.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fletcher's words are undeniably beautiful and her themes are profound A dazzling novel of love, loss and trust that has a powerful grip. Fletcher is a natural story teller whose well-spun stories draw you in from the first page Can you talk a little about how that happened? I found writing this book so tricky, which is attributable to lots of things: the so-called 'second novel syndrome', and the fact that I put a lot of pressure on myself to write to a certain standard. But, in contrast to Eve Green, Oystercatchers also involved living for two and a half years with quite a spiky person I would choose to be Eve's friend - but I probably wouldn't choose to be Moira's.
And because it is a novel about a downward spiral, it is darker than Eve Green emotionally, and perhaps that took its toll. I just didn't want to see words or do anything with books, or read anything for months! In the end I gave myself a big break, which was long overdue. I went to Africa for three months and it was wonderful. On an ideal day I would sit down at eight thirty in the morning and write until three o'clock in the afternoon and then go and do some kind of exercise or just go for a walk.
It was only recently that I found out from a friend that that's what Hemingway always advised writers to do. Another thing I found helpful was to leave an incomplete sentence at the end of each day of writing so that I would have a reason to go back to my desk the next morning! Do you read poetry?
