“Gabe and I are happy this way. We don’t need anyone else in our lives.”

Mariana feels like a pawn in other people’s games. Her birth mother is ill and opportunities for them to be reconciled are running out.

Despite being adopted, Mariana has always felt secure with who she is. But both sides of her birth family are now closing in, and whatever she decides will irrevocably alter many lives; most of all the man and woman who created her.

Of His Bones is about predestination and choices. It explores themes of familial love, identity and the powerful hold of the past. Set in the seascapes of East and North Yorkshire, this novel is the sister-book to The Last Time We Saw Marion.


Tracey Scott-Townsend is the author of uncompromising family dramas which delve into often uncomfortable aspects of relationships of all kinds, but motherhood is frequently at the heart of her stories. Sense of place is also important. Three of her books feature the Humber Estuary in East Yorkshire, where she lived for a year when she was young.
