Description

A meat truck carrying illegal immigrants is intercepted at the Canadian-American border but an unconscious woman is inadvertently left inside the truck. Two strangers, waiting in separate cars, impulsively smuggle her across the border, and their lives are changed irrevocably. In this complex and compelling novel, Felicity and Gus cross and re-cross borders - between countries, between past and present, and between reality and illusion as they struggle to come to terms with borderlines of their own.
