By Elizabeth Pulford

When a family is struck by tragedy a little hope is all that is needed.

When Kate’s father goes missing, Kate’s life is thrown into chaos. More than ever before, she is drawn to the old tin hut among the tussock grass. There she lights a lamp each night to guide her father home. And there she meets the troubled Troy. Secretive and brooding, Troy seems almost as lost as her father. Kate wonders if her life will ever be the same.
