An extraordinary island fantasy from the author of Slights.
The island is the world, and the centre of the island is the Tree. When they are 18, each person must leave their home and walk the Tree. Years later, when they return – if they return – they will be changed.
When Lillah embarks on her own journey, however, she never expected to deviate from the sacred path… and enter the Tree.

“Powerful stuff. So powerful, in fact, that my throat was hurting with my attempts to keep my emotions under control. I was completely drawn in, totally immersed. I felt ill much of the time.”
- Russell Kirkpatrick, bestselling author of “Across the Face of the World”
