Publisher's Summary

Justine is running for her life. Escaping a city and a man, she heads north to the valleys of the Highlands.
Michael and Hannah are also running, with their two sons and their tattered marriage. They are looking for somewhere they can call home.
In an ancient landscape, a shocking accident causes their lives to intertwine. Tangled together in threads of guilt and love, with Scotland rushing towards a referendum and the community fracturing, they must all face their ghosts.


What the Critics Say

"I am in awe of Karen Campbell's writing. Rise soars and sears in equal measure - it is brilliant, unputdownable storytelling." (Mel Giedroyc)
"A beautifully written novel about freedom and forgiveness. Heated, political and lyrical, this is an excellent, topical novel." (Red)

Really good listen and a great narration. First I found the different sides of the story a bit confusing: a girl running away form something, an accident, the Scottish referendum, god. However, well into the story it all fits. I really enjoyed this listen.
