A literary, meditative take on a climate-disaster dystopian novel. The High House is a refuge for characters, but the question is if they will not only survive the disaster but the world to come, and if, in the end, survival is worth it if there is no one left to share it with. ~ Luami
Perched on a hill above a village by the sea, the high house has a mill, a vegetable garden and a barn full of supplies.
Caro and her younger half-brother, Pauly, arrive there one day to find it cared for by Grandy and his granddaughter, Sally. Not quite a family, they learn to live together, and care for one another.
But there are limits even to what the ailing Grandy knows about how to survive, and, if the storm comes, it might not be enough.
