Amihan lives on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants –
including her mother – have leprosy.

Ami loves her home – with its blue seas and lush forests,
Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival of malicious
government official Mr Zamora changes her world forever: islanders
untouched by sickness are forced to leave.

Banished across the sea, she’s desperate to return, and finds
a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead
her home before it’s too late?

The fourth children’s novel by Times number
one bestselling author Kiran Millwood Hargrave, winner of the
Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the British Book Awards
Children’s Book of the Year.

From the author of A Secret of Birds & Bone,
The Way Past Winter and The Deathless
Girls.

An irresistably poetic, bittersweet and heartbreaking
tale of a girl finding her way back to her mother.
