Summary

Jaxie dreads going home. His mum’s dead. The old man bashes him without mercy, and he wishes he was an orphan. And then, in one terrible moment, his life is stripped to little more than what he can carry and how he can keep himself alive. 

There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he still dares to hope for. But to reach her he’ll have to cross the vast saltlands on a trek that only a dreamer or a fugitive would attempt.

A haunting, harrowing and poetic journey

Perfectly told tale of two men, one at the beginning of his life, the other at the end, both with deep dark secrets. Only the third character, the timeless landscape, seems settled. The voices are as authentic as they are poetic. I savoured every word. The characters have stayed with me, haunted me, from as soon as the last word was spoken. Oh, and the narration is superb. The accents are perfectly rendered. Do yourself a favour... it is the sort of book that enriches life.
