After twelve years trapped in the throat of a serpent, a girl escapes. She returns to her village naked with a monstrous snakeskin trailing behind her. One decision at a time, she reclaims her life. Each character she encounters by land and sea -- brute, healer, orphan, mystic, lover -- reflects an unhealed aspect of herself and plots her recovery through symbolic milestones. Serpents Wake is intended for adults and young adults exploring how, once fractured, we may mend.  246pp  h230mm  x  w155mm  312g
