On Traigh Lar Beach Summary

On Traigh Lar Beach: Stories by Dianne Ebertt Beeaff

Erica Winchat, a young writer overwhelmed by the stress of her first book contract, discovers thirteen curious items tangled in the flotsam on the Scottish beach of Traigh Lar. Erica tells the intriguing story of the owner of each of these items, uncovering a series of dramatic events-from a Chicago widow's inspiring visit to Quebec City to a shrimper's daughter facing Tropical Storm Ruby in North Carolina.

The thirteenth item, a concert laminate badge, inspires Erica's novella Fan Girls, in which the separate stories of four fans of the Scottish rock band Datha unfold in first person, culminating in their reunion at a concert in Chicago-a show where a shooting takes place.

On Traigh Lar Beach Reviews

"Dianne Beeaff has a keen eye for specific settings and an uncanny ability to express the unique concerns of people from a broad spectrum of humanity. On Traaigh Lar Beach deeply satisfies because its vivid descriptions pulled me into the characters' experiences and kept me wondering until I reached each of her stories' unexpected, but not illogical, conclusion."
-Carol Sletten, author of Three Strong Western Women and Story of the American West: -Legends of Arizona

"On Traigh Lar Beach is rich in lyrical prose and stunning detail and takes a poignant look at human connectedness, how unremarkable items are mirrors of lives an ocean apart, yet link us in the most human way."
-Susan Haught, award-winning author of A Promise of Fireflies
