"A writer of real gravitas and potency." (Ali Smith). "An extraordinary journey...Engrossing, original and eloquent." (Helen Dunmore). "Elegiac and beautifully observed." (Observer). "Vivid and captivating." (Stylist). I didn't realise my mother was a person until I was thirteen years old and she pulled me out of bed, put me in the back of her car, and we left home and my dad with no explanations.
I thought that Ma was all that she was and all that she had ever wanted to be.
I was wrong...As Ma and Alex make their way from Virginia to California, each new state prompts stories and secrets of a life before Alex.
Together they put to rest unsettled scores, heal old wounds, and search out lost friends.
But Alex can't forget the life they've left behind.
