Waterstones Says

A letter from her beloved, recently deceased father leads Clara on a journey of discovery in a remote part of Norway in Heminsley’s moving, transportive and unputdownable debut.

Find escape with the beautiful, moving debut novel from Sunday Times-bestselling author Alexandra Heminsley, a stunning story of sisterhood and wilderness.

Clara Seymour is trying to find her feet in London, living away from home for the first time. Brought up by her domineering mother, treasuring time any time with her adoring father, Clara's world is brought to a standstill when her dad abruptly dies.

Then, a mystery comes to light in a letter from him.

I am sure you are aware that before I met your mother I had a previous marriage. But what we never discussed is that we had a daughter.

So begins a journey of discovery that takes Clara to remote Norway and a landscape as brutal as it is bewitching, a voyage fraught with personal and emotional danger to reveal who her father really was - and find the sister she's never met.
