A moving, eerie story of love and (gradual, impending, feared) loss. This first novel from Julia Armfield, author of excellent short story collection Salt Slow, tells the story of Miri and Leah, reunited after Leah’s submarine expedition met with disaster. Getting her wife back feels like it should be a cause for celebration, but their life together does not return to plain sailing and Miri fears losing Leah all over again.
