Elijah, seven years old, is covered in scars and has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties – and that being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son.
Elijah’s birth mother Deborah loves her son like the world has never known. Elijah thinks it’s his fault they can’t be together.
Each of them faces more challenges than they could have dreamed, but just as Elijah starts to settle in, a shocking event rocks their fragile peace and the result is devastating.
‘Staggeringly authentic, staggeringly moving and profound … and at times hysterically funny. It’s a gem’ Lesley Lokko.
‘Uplifting, heartwarming’ Pride Magazine.
‘Kept us gripped throughout . . stayed with us long after we’d finished the final page’ Stylist.
‘Expertly handles delicate, culturally sensitive issues . . . Elijah’s voice shines through the pages, making him a character who is memorable long after the story ends’ We Love This Book.
