Thank you to the publisher for a free digital copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. (Also, I won a finished copy of this book from a giveaway on Instagram.)

Talk about a beautiful book! The cover is stunning – gold foil that shimmers in the light?!!? Yes, please!

A few days after giving birth to her son, Z, a woman and her husband are forced to evacuate London as it floods. They are forced to become refugees as they go from shelter to shelter. As if new motherhood isn’t terrifying enough, this novel forces us to look at the bond and love between a mother and her child. While you’d expect it to be very dark and gloomy, the book is filled with love and hope. The mother’s spirit is strong and resilient as she raises a baby – that continues to grow despite the odds.

I didn’t expect to be captivated by this book. I misjudged its size (only 160 pages) as being puny. I wasn’t sure how good it could be with such little content. BUT, I WAS SOOOO WRONG! This {small} book packs a punch! I read it in one sitting because I could not walk away. I had to know what happened to this family!

As we as a global family face the uncertainties related to global warming and catastrophic weather events, this one is definitely worth adding to your list of must-reads!
