Micky has a history of making wrong choices and living only for her own desires, but her decision to save the child’s life – and pit herself against an adversary as fearsome as he is cunning – takes her on a journey of incredible peril and stunning discoveries, a journey filled with tragedy and joy, with humour, terror and hope, a journey that will change her for ever.
