Porthayle: a small tourist destination on the North Cornish coast.
Seven hours and a million miles away from his old life in Kent, Chris Thornton finds himself plunged into the restless local community. Hitching up with two brothers and the son of a local druid, Chris is taken on a trail of discovery and incident, culminating in an event that will irrevocably alter the lives of all four friends.
Set in a community struggling to exist in the shadow of tourism, Golden Burn tells the tumultuous story of Jim, Henry, Doashie, and the outsider they came to call The Cat.
