One Small Life

Author(s): Anna Housego


Does her life even matter?

Grace is a mystery to herself. It's 1924 and she's starting out with no knowledge of her parents, no prospects, no protection. She thinks the worst is behind her at the Rescue Home, that the job at the orchard beside the Southern Ocean is her big chance. But the world she's entering is a dangerous place.

When she's attacked at the orchard she flees into the surf and despite almost drowning, has the strange sense that she's come home.

Months later, trapped by circumstances, she meets a lighthouse keeper and makes a reckless choice. It leads her to a different ocean, where the secret she's carrying can no longer be hidden ... and the disturbing truth of her origins is revealed.

She must decide what to do, but first she must confront what kind of woman she is willing to be.

One Small Life is an inspiring story about the power of choices to strengthen or destroy us. For those who enjoy fiction about women with grit. By the author of The Way to Midnight.
