On the night that Carla Reid plans on celebrating her wedding anniversary with her husband Kevin and their grown son Jack, their New Zealand farmstead has never felt more like home. But when Ben Toroa and another aspiring gang member brutally force their way into the house with robbery and more on their minds the night and the rest of both their lives take a radically different direction. As Carla struggles to come to terms with the aftermath and bereavement of different kinds, and Ben faces the consequences in prison, their stories continue to interweave.

'A gripping story about grief and redemption' Sunday Mirror 'Well-crafted...fascinating' Cape Times 'This really is a remarkable book, I cannot praise it enough. It touched something deep inside me ... The author is a new citizen of this country, and yet she has such insight and compassion into such a big issue ... Read this, be humbled and see how we can all make a difference.' Kiwi Flora Reads
