'Gripping and utterly believable' IAN RANKIN, Guardian Books of the Year

‘A story about the strength and fragility of human nature.
Rob Ewing's writing is powerful, compassionate and brilliant.
I absolutely loved it’ JOANNA CANNON, the author
of THE TROUBLE WITH GOATS AND SHEEP

Eight-year-old Rona lives in an empty house with her friends Elizabeth and Alex. Home is a deserted island off Scotland where days are filled by playing school and 'shopping' for food and batteries. There are other children too – Calum Ian and Duncan – and the cats that follow them around. But for the last ones left, the path to survival is paved with dangers and decisions that risk extinguishing the hope they've so carefully kept alive.

Review:

‘Ewing does a fantastic job of making us feel like children again – not carefree, but lost in a confusing world replete with dangers over which we have little control’ Guardian

‘An amazing book of courage and survival ... a book about memory, friendship and hope. It's the kind of book that made me want to wake my children from their beds, just to kiss them and whisper that I love them. A tremendous novel – I absolutely loved it’ Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days

‘Ewing succeeds brilliantly. Be warned: you’ll feel well and truly wrung-out after reading this, but you’ll also hold your loved ones that little bit closer’ The Scotsman

‘A beautiful, heartwarming story of survival and strength . . . an original piece of work, one which grips the reader to the very end’ The Press and Journal

From the Author:

Rob Ewing is a GP who spent several years living on a small island off the Scottish coast (with more than five other people). His poetry and short fiction have been published by New Writing UK, New Writing Scotland, and performed on BBC Radio. The Last of Us is his first novel.
