The Circle

Katherena Vermette

From the award-winning and #1 bestselling author of The Break and The Strangers comes the final instalment in this heart-rending, utterly immersive Indigenous family saga, with a series tie-in cover.

The day that Cedar-Sage Stranger has been both dreading and longing for has finally come- her sister Phoenix is getting out of prison. The effect of Phoenix's release cascades through the community. When Phoenix is seen lingering outside the school to catch a glimpse of her son, Sparrow, the police get a call to file a report - but the next thing they know, Phoenix has disappeared.

Told from various perspectives, with an unforgettable voice for each chapter, the novel is masterfully structured as a Restorative Justice Circle where all gather - both the victimized and the accused - to take account of a crime that has altered the course of their lives.

The Circle considers what it means to be abandoned by the very systems that claim to offer support, how it feels to gain a sense of belonging, and the unanticipated cost of protecting those you love most.
