International bestseller

Longlisted Dublin IMPAC Award 2018

A stunning and multiple prize-winning first novel by a First Nations Canadian writer who is being acclaimed around the world.

Stella, a young Métis mother, lives with her family by the Break, an isolated strip of land on the edge of their small Canadian town. Glancing out of her window one winter's evening Stella spots someone in trouble; horrified, she calls the police. But when they arrive, no one is there, scuff marks in the compacted snow the only sign anything may have happened. What follows is a heartbreaking and powerful tale of a community in crisis as the people connected to the victim, a young girl on the edge of a precipice, begin to lay bare their stories leading up to that fateful night. Lou is a social worker grappling with the end of a relationship. Cheryl, an artist, mourns the premature death of her sister. Phoenix, a homeless teenager, is released from a youth detention centre with no one to turn to. Officer Scott is a Métis policeman caught between two worlds. A powerful family saga, Katherena Vermette's urgent, acclaimed and multi-award-winning novel shines a light on the fear every woman carries within her – fear of male power and violence – and on the love and empathy shared by all women.

'I loved this – very tough and real.'
Margaret Atwood

'A dazzling debut ... a terrific achievement, combining passages of lyrical prose with a compelling account of the way violent crime warps the lives of several generations.'
The Sunday Times
