The Certainties

Aislinn Hunter

From the acclaimed and Gerald Lampert Award-winning author of Into the Early Hours and The World Before Us, Aislinn Hunter, comes a vivid, moving novel about the entwined fates of two very different refugees. Spanning 40 years and told through the stories of Pia and the man who shared his history with her when she was a child, The Certainties is about survival in the face of fascism, forced migration and the cost of war. It is also a moving and transformative blend of historical and speculative fiction, showing us what it means to bear witness and pay attention to those who seek refuge.
