Between Grandmother Mountain and the cold sea, Alaia and her family live off the land.
But when her brother 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.
This gripping novel is set deep in our stone-age past, but resonates as a parable for our troubled planet 8,000 years on.
