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.

Arthur C Clarke Centenary

The Arthur C. Clarke Award is the most prestigious award for science fiction in Britain. The annual award is given for the best science fiction novel first published in the United Kingdom during the previous year. The award was established with a generous grant given by Sir Arthur C. Clarke and the first prize was awarded in 1987 to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The winner receives a prize consisting of a number of pounds sterling equal to the current year (£2017 for year 2017).
