This One Sky Day (Hardback)Leone Ross (author)
- 5+ in stock
A woozily atmospheric magic realist novel peopled by a cast of quirky, unforgettable characters, This One Sky Day charts the troubled course of true love across an enchanted twenty-four hours.
Dawn breaks across the archipelago of Popisho.
The world is stirring awake again, each resident with their own list of things to do:
A wedding feast to conjure and cook
An infidelity to investigate
A lost soul to set free
As the sun rises two star-crossed lovers try to find their way back to one another across this single day. When night falls, all have been given a gift, and many are no longer the same. The sky is pink, and some wonder if it will ever be blue again.
