Description

Even the darkest journey must come to an end...

'Haunting, intoxicating' Ali Land, author of Good Me, Bad Me

'Deeply affecting' Chris Whitaker, author of All the Wicked Girls

Three years ago, Lelle's daughter went missing in a remote part of Northern Sweden. Lelle has spent the intervening summers driving the Silver Road under the midnight sun, frantically searching for his lost daughter, for himself and for redemption.

Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Meja arrives in town hoping for a fresh start. She is the same age as Lelle's daughter was - a girl on the brink of adulthood. But for Meja, there are dangers to be found in this isolated place.

As autumn's darkness slowly creeps in, Lelle and Meja's lives are intertwined in ways, both haunting and tragic, that they could never have imagined.

Review quote

I love everything about this book. Stina Jackson has mastered the art of combining suspense with literary depth. It's oh so beautiful, wistful and well written. * Lina Bengtsdotter, author of For the Missing * I lost the whole weekend to Lelle and Meja and couldn't have loved it more. Deeply affecting and full of heart, yet a dark, despairing page-turner. A very impressive debut. * Chris Whitaker, author of All the Wicked Girls * A stunning read. Beautifully written and utterly haunting. * Jo Spain, author of The Confession * I really enjoyed The Silver Road. There's a haunting, intoxicating atmosphere throughout, intensified by the never ending Nordic daylight, which is in stark contrast to the darkness of the families the story follows. A great read. * Ali Land, author of Good Me Bad Me *
