Product description

Grainne’s birth mother is coming to visit from America – a mum she has never seen before. As Grainne nervously waits for her arrival, her step-mother and two noisy half-brothers decide to go on a break. They are off to Finland for an adventure holiday, riding dog-sleds at a remote lodge. But when their mum is lost in the snowy wastes, the stage is set for a novel in two voices: a frantic story of seeking and finding which shrieks with nail-biting tension. Evoking a world of snow and ice, and of loss and forgiveness, this gripping survival story from Booker Prize winner Roddy Doyle truly sticks in the mind.
