A boy, age 11, no longer completely a child, not ready to be a man. Leaving an irrevocable past, not yet arrived at where his future will begin. A ship, neither on land nor in the sea, between countries and borders, racing over an invisible, ever-changing landscape beneath an endless sky. This is where adventures grow, for the most insignifant; where the moments that will define who you are, are found.
This story of one man’s return to his childhood home twines through the history of his family, all haunted by the ghosts of their lives. The prose captures the chill of winter, the warmth and pain of life, and the wild woods and rivers on which the tale unfolds. This is a lovely, haunting debut that flows through time, blending reality with myth and memory.
