Noah and Mia live far, far away from each other, but look out upon the same great sea. In the evening, Noah and his dog Gus watch the sun softly slip beneath the waves; in the morning, Mia and her cat Olive watch from the cliffs as it rises.

When Gus dies, Noah is heartbroken. In his dreams he searches for his loyal friend, but instead finds only an unfamiliar black cat. Mia dreams too: of a life better than the one she has now, and of a place to call home. When Olive leads her down an unknown path, Mia begins an epic journey which takes her somewhere she never expected.

Will Mia and Noah find all they've dreamt of?

Poignant and uplifting, Martin Widmark's story of finding hope and a home is accompanied by stunning illustrations from Emilia Dziubak, which alternate between the two characters' interconnected journeys. Martin and Emilia are co-creators of USBBY Outstanding International Book The House of Lost and Found, and of Little Pearl.
