Her grandmother’s final words are just the first chapter.

Catriona Robinson – the country’s most beloved children’s author – worries about her granddaughter, Emily. Ever since the car crash that claimed both her parents’ lives and left her with life-changing injuries, Emily has been voluntarily mute and refuses to leave the house.

When her grandmother dies unexpectedly, Emily is in danger of retreating from the world even further. But Catriona was always too cunning to ever let that happen.

Days after the funeral, Emily discovers a coded dedication in her grandmother’s first book. And then another, and another. Every one apparently written just for Emily – each a clue that will lead her on a bigger quest in search of Catriona’s much-rumoured final manuscript.

If she ever hopes to find it, Emily must take a leap into the unknown. All she needs is a little dedication . . .
