* A Scotsman ‘Best Book of 2023’ *

From an award-winning Scottish poet, an unforgettable novel about memory and radical forgiveness

How far would you go to overcome the limits of your own forgiveness?

Quinn is serving a life sentence for a crime he’s convinced he hasn’t committed. Surely the authorities have got it wrong, and when they find his childhood sweetheart, Andrea, his name will be cleared. His parole date is drawing near when he receives an unexpected letter from Andrea’s mother, who invites Quinn to share her home. 

It soon becomes clear that what appears to be a genuine act of forgiveness is influenced by more complex motivations. As the duo navigate the thorny terrain of guilt, justice and mutual need that underpins their relationship, the story of Quinn’s past is gradually revealed, setting in motion a final reckoning. 

Em Strang’s first novel is a hypnotic rendering of an unravelling mind and a visceral story about the very limits of forgiveness.
