"Gracefully written... a brave and moving adventure of the imagination." - Lindsay Clarke, author of The Chymical Wedding

"A monument to the timelessness of human nature, and a work of art... a masterpiece of pacing. Bretherton ignites her characters with a life, complexity, a personality with which any number of readers will identify and empathise with." - Naomi Moore, Editor, New Orbit literary magazine

"Bretherton weaves a cat's cradle of human history, from the panoramic overview to day-to-day existence. An accomplished debut... one to watch." - Su Bristow, author of Sealskin

"Opening up new worlds... what powerful fiction does best... a novel to be appreciated on many different levels. Ambitious and brave yet effortlessly pulled off... Like Sapiens... if fictionalised and seen through the eyes of two fierce and admirable women." - Zero Filter Books

"A brilliant, genre-defying read, Bone Lines deftly unravels the wonder of oneness." - Barbara Bos, Editor, Women Writers, Women's Books.

"Compelling... the story drew me in completely... a fascinating read." - Cheryl Morgan-Muir, book blogger

A young woman walks alone through a barren landscape in a time before history, a time of cataclysmic natural change. She is cold, hungry and with child but not without hope or resources. A skilful hunter, she draws on her intuitive understanding of how to stay alive... and knows that she must survive.

In the present day, geneticist Dr Eloise Kluft wrestles with an ancient conundrum as she unravels the secrets of a momentous archaeological find. She is working at the forefront of contemporary science but is caught in the lonely time-lock of her own emotional past.

Bone Lines is the story of two women separated by millennia yet bound by the web of life. This intriguing tale of love and survival, of courage and the quest for wisdom also explores the nature of our species and asks what lies at the heart of being human.

Genre: Science Fiction
