The beloved author of The Midnight Library and How to Stop Time returns with another beautifully wrought and inspiring novel of wild adventure and deep transformation.

What looks like magic is simply a part of life we don’t understand yet . . .

When retired Maths teacher Grace is left a run-down house on a Mediterranean island by a long-lost friend, curiosity gets the better of her. She arrives in Ibiza with a one-way ticket, no guidebook and no plan.

Among the rugged hills and golden beaches of the Balearics, Grace searches for answers about her friend’s life, and how it ended. What she uncovers is stranger than she could have dreamed. But to dive into this impossible truth, Grace must first come to terms with her past.

Filled with wonder and wild adventure, this is a story of hope and the life-changing power of a new beginning.


A beautiful novel full of life-affirming wonder and imagination, and at its adventurous heart a wry and tender love-letter to the best of being a human alive at this time on this planet – BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH
