A novel by Tawhida Tanya Evanson.

In this sweeping, allusive novel, the celebrated poet, dervish, and oral storyteller Tawhida Tanya Evanson comes to terms with what it means to stand on one's own two feet in an uncertain world.

The acclaimed Antiguan Canadian artist traces a global journey from Vancouver to the United States, Caribbean, Paris and Morocco as a relationship with her lover and travel partner disintegrates and she finds herself on a path toward personal discovery and spiritual fulfilment that leads her deep into the North African landscape.
