Description

From the acclaimed author of Tiny Sunbirds Far Away, winner of the Costa First Novel Elijah, seven years old, is covered in scars and has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties - and that being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son. Elijah's birth mother Deborah loves her son like the world has never known. Elijah thinks it's his fault they can't be together. Each of them faces more challenges than they could have dreamed, but just as Elijah starts to settle in, a shocking event rocks their fragile peace and the result is devastating. Praise for the author: 'Absorbing and passionate' GUARDIAN 'Skilfully treading the fine line between gritty hardship and homespun warmth’ INDEPENDENT
