Summary

`An utterly compelling blend of tenderness and menace...astonishing' Ruth Hogan, The Keeper of Lost Things
`Uplifting. I loved it. It's made me see the world in a different way' Dawn O Porter


Nova is 32 years old and she is about to see the world for the very first time.



Nova can do many things. She can speak five languages. She can always find a silver lining. And as an interpreter for the Metropolitan Police, she can tell when someone is lying just from the sound of their voice.

But there's one thing Nova can't do. She can't see.

When her brother convinces her to have an operation that will restore her sight, Nova wakes up to a world she no longer understands. Until she meets Kate.

As Kate comes into focus and their unlikely friendship blossoms, Kate's past threatens to throw them into a different kind of darkness. Can they both learn to see the world in a different way?

Review Quotes

`Truly original...it kept me guessing until the nail-biting end. A stunning and memorable page-turner' Sarah J. Harris, author of The Colour of Bee Larkham's Murder

`Extraordinary - a compelling, enlightening story with dark shadows and hope at its heart. It's a book that reveals the world in a different light and changes the way you see it. So fresh, so original and so vivid, I loved it!' Sunday Times bestseller, Miranda Dickinson
