Publisher Description

This beautifully written novel by Laurence Fearnley is about finding love in the most unlikely of places. Set in the southern South Island, it describes the unusual friendship formed between 62-year-old photographer Edwin and 22-year-old Matilda, whom he meets when shooting photographs for her wedding. Brought together, Edwin and Matilda embark on a search for Edwin's mother, a woman he has long believed dead. The journey involves a series of telling, sometimes agonising, discoveries by Edwin - all the while with Matilda by his side. Along the journey, Edwin and Matilda develop an increasingly intense relationship, one which grows in ways neither of them could possibly have predicted.
