About the book

Finding a new beginning means taking the hardest road…but the journey is where you find your true courage.

Torn away from their beloved home, the journey for the Carter family has just begun…

In the middle of the night, Evie is torn away from her beloved home and close-knit community, as her family run away to the south. Her father’s luck has finally run out but, what should mark a hopeful new beginning, is just the start of young Evie’s troubles.

With the weight of her family’s future on her shoulders, Evie has no-one to turn to. Her mother, worn down by life, runs off with a new man, and with her grandmother’s sight failing, it’s left to Evie to earn their keep and run the house. Holding her family together is only made harder when tragedy strikes at its heart.

A lost letter from home means that Evie’s only hope of a happy ending has been dashed, but she’s determined to make a new future for herself and find her own fortune in life.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
