Publisher's Summary

Elijah, seven years old, is covered in scars and has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties - and that being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son.

Elijah's birth mother Deborah loves her son like the world has never known. Elijah thinks it's his fault they can't be together. Each of them faces more challenges than they could have dreamed, but just as Elijah starts to settle in, a shocking event rocks their fragile peace and the result is devastating.

From the Costa Prize-winning author of Tiny Sunbirds Far Away, this wonderful new novel is read by Adjoa Andoh, the award-winning voice of novels by Dorothy Koomson and Alexander McCall Smith.

    Story
    "A lovely written book about a dark reality"

    It’s scary to think about things we do for love. Esprcially when depression and superstition clouds the mind. In this book Christie Watson talks about many serious topics from miscarriages to children branded as witches by so called holy men. She tells the different stories in such a way that you understand what drives the different characters to act the way they do. Very few books make me cry, but this one did. Hoping to read more from this author who also wrote the brilliant Tiny sunbirds far away.

    Story
    "Captivating Story!"

    It was Adjoa Andoh's narration of my other audible books - Purple Hibiscus, Tiny Sunbirds Far Away, etc. that made me aware of this book. Spirituality, and the common issue of people being termed 'witches' and 'wizards' felt very real being a Nigerian.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Adjoa's narration and Christie Watson didn't fail to disappoint after capturing my heart with her Tiny Sunbirds Far Away.

    Elijah's moving story touched me.

    "Incredibly emotional and real"

    This novel is so incredibly real and moving. The emotions and portrayal of the individuals affected are so convincing I cried with them. I think Christie Watson may be my new favourite.
