Travelling in the Dark

Travelling in the Dark


Travelling back to her home town with her young son, Sarah is ready to face up to what she ran away from ten years ago. As delays and diversions force her to return to well-known places from her youth, Sarah reflects on the relationships with her family and the events of the past that have shaped her present. Set in the wild, beautiful and unreliable landscape of southern New Zealand, the novella is an evocative story of a woman coming to terms with her past.

"I have travelled to a place that you cannot buy a ticket to; there is no train that goes there, no boat, no plane; there is no map that you can follow to find it; there is no road. It lies on the other side of that circle of light."

Sarah is traveling with her young son back to her home town in the south of New Zealand. But when debris from an earthquake closes the road before her, she is forced to extend her journey and divert through the places from her youth that she had hoped never to return to. As the memories of her childhood resurface, Sarah knows that for the sake of her son, she must face up to them now or be lost forever.
