Product Description

A haunting tale of longing and secrets by the author of How I Live Now. Masterly storytelling full of joy and sorrow from one of our true greats. On the morning of her wedding, Pell Ridley creeps out of bed in the dark, kisses her sisters goodbye – and flees. Determined to escape a future that offers nothing but pain and drudgery, she takes the only thing that truly belongs to her: Jack, a white horse. The road ahead is rich with longing, silence and secrets. Each encounter leads her closer to an untold story from her past. Then Pell meets a hunter: infuriating, mysterious and cold. Will he help her to find what she seeks? Or must she continue to wander the Earth, searching for love and lost things?

“A poetically charged romance, full of thorny emotional dilemmas… Compelling.” Marie Claire

“An engaging, impeccably written novel.” Independent on Sunday

“Rosoff’s prose is strong and muscular, its cadence that of a horse’s canter, its chiming tone ballad-like. Teens will be enthralled.” LA Times
