When we seek comfort and relief from stress, Tara Brach teaches, we often unconsciously turn to false refuges such as material wealth, approval from others, or a preoccupation with the past and future. Yet by cultivating true refuge in this moment, not only can we find shelter from the storms of life but we also open ourselves up to fully experiencing joy and fulfillment. Here, Tara Brach guides a meditation using the therapeutic R.A.I.N. process for releasing fear and healing through self-compassion.

The Isle of Lewis is the most desolate and harshly beautiful place in Scotland. When a bloody murder on the island bears the hallmarks of a similar slaying in Edinburgh, police detective Fin Macleod is dispatched north to investigate. Since Fin himself was raised on the island, the investigation represents not only a journey home but a voyage into his past. Each year twelve island men sail out to a remote and treacherous rock called An Sgeir on a perilous quest to slaughter nesting seabirds.

Mysteries with set against the backdrop of the dramatic scenery and grey skies of northern lands are very in vogue. In The Black house, the landscape traditions and culture and language of the of the the isle of Lewis provide more than an exotic setting. The protagonist must use his intimate knowledge of island life to understand what has happened to the victim and to come to terms with his own story.

Excellent writing and narration. The plot is full of surprises and will keep you guessing right to the end.
