A flooded world. A floating circus. Two women in search of a home. North lives on a circus boat with her beloved bear, keeping a secret that could capsize her life.
Callanish lives alone in her house in the middle of the ocean, tending the graves of those who die at sea.
As penance for a terrible mistake, she has become a gracekeeper.
A chance meeting between the two draws them magnetically to one another - and to the promise of a new life.
But the waters are treacherous, and the tide is against them. "The Gracekeepers is enchanting and heart-tugging. If you love Margaret Atwood you'll love this". (Sunday Telegraph). "A wondrous read". (Stylist). "Clever and original". (The Times). "Truly magical". (Heat).
