Travelling back to her home town with her young son, Sarah is ready to face up to what she ran away from ten years ago.
As delays and diversions force her to return to well-known places from her youth, Sarah reflects on the relationships with her family and the events of the past that have shaped her present.
Set in the wild, beautiful and unreliable landscape of southern New Zealand, the novella is an evocative story of a woman coming to terms with her past.
'A tour de force of imagery and emotion.' - Clio Gray, author of 'The Anatomist's Dream'
'Is this a story about love? In part it is: love and the absence of love. The love that should be there but isn't, the love you go in quest of and the love that travels with you, half-unnoticed.' - Felicity Notley, co-editor of 'Cornish Short Stories'
'This is a clever, sensitive and deserving book. The journey leaves us, not with the expected finish but, instead, a master stroke.' - Candy Neubert, poet
