Disillusioned with God after a battle to conceive, Catherine O’Hall watches the grains of her life slip between her fingers like sand. In an attempt to leave her heartache behind and find out who she is – if not a mother – she leaves Sicily and boards an aeroplane bound for South Africa. She knows that she is lost and dares God to find her.

Rebecca and Nathaniel Allwood run a feeding project near the mouth of the Ngqusi and Inxaxo rivers on the Wild Coast. The understanding had always been that if Becs and Tick look after the community, they would return the favour. Until one day, a mysterious threat to their lives forces Becs to face the truth of how her family really came to own a farm surrounded by tribal land.

When Catherine arrives on the Wild Coast, lives are upturned and discoveries are made that push both families into places where only God can find them.

Angeline Wilkinson

“Read over 2 days; an extremely heart-wrenching story. For a first novel, every essence of this story is descriptively captured. I found myself absorbed in the lives of these 2 women. Made to feel like I was on the same emotional rollercoaster that never seemed to slow down.”

Sarah Tarr

“A beautifully written story of trials and faith. Once the story started it was captivating. I look forward to seeing more from this new author.”
