Aspiring writer Nell Stevens secures a fellowship that gives her the time to write a novel in any place on Earth. Nell wants isolation and to be serious about committing to her writing. So she picks the Falklands. Nell learns about isolation through the people she meets and engaging with her circumstances, both in the present and her relationships. Selections from the novel she was hoping to write are included but this look into an area of the world that isn't thought about was what initially drew me to it. Nell is familiar and charming and I enjoyed my visit with her.
