A girl who's lost her mother. A boy learning about love. Both with a secret neither knows about and a journey that could tear them apart.

Long-listed for the 2016 Exeter Novel Prize

On the remote planet of Eloia, Dex and Leanora live in two worlds that intersect: the world of the seeing and the blind. Leanora alone travels between them. But she hides her limited eyesight from the boy she loves. Then tragedy strikes and Leanora and Dex must trek across Eloia in search of answers while struggling to survive in the harsh wilderness. Leanora's mother, believed to be dead, has left traces of herself in every community they encounter.

Each step of their odyssey takes Dex further away from Leanora and closer to someone new. Caught between her allegiance to their shared history and following her heart, Leanora must decide: is survival more important than love?

Eloia Born is the first in a two book series. The sequel, Hirana's War, releases in early summer 2020.
