In a world full of check points and controls, can love and hope defy the borders? A searing, timely story, as arresting as it is beautiful.

Mhairi Anne Bain owns only two things: a gun with no bullets and her identity papers.

The world is a shell of what it once was. Now, you must prove yourself worthy of existence at every turn, at every border checkpoint. And if you are going to survive, your instincts will become your most valuable weapon.

Mhairi has learnt the importance of living her own story, of speaking to no one. But then she meets a young boy with no voice at all, and finds herself risking everything to take him to safety.

Mhairi and the silent boy travel the road north, towards what she truly believes is their salvation. But there are rumous that things have changed since she has been away ...

An extraordinary story about the power of small kindnesses to change everything, this is a book to read in one sitting.
