Between Grandmother Mountain and the cold sea, Alaia and her family live off the land.
But when one of her brothers goes hunting and never returns, the fragile balance of life is upset.
Half-starved and maddened with grief, Alaia's mother follows her visions and goes in search of her lost son.
The Gathering Night is a story of conflict, loss, love, adventure and devastating natural disaster.
