Long-listed for the 2016 Exeter Novel Prize
Two planets with a shared destiny. Four communities bound in disability. Two blind teens struggling to find a way to love each other. “If you love someone do you leave them behind?”
On the remote planet of Eloia, Dex and Leanora live in two worlds that intersect: the world of seeing and the world of the blind. Leanora alone travels between them. But she keeps her limited eyesight a secret from the boy she loves most in the world.
Then tragedy strikes: Leanora and Dex must trek across Eloia in search of answers while struggling to survive in the harsh wilderness. Leanora’s mother, believed to be dead, has left traces of herself in every community they encounter.
Each step of their journey takes Dex further away from Leanora and closer to someone new. Caught between her allegiance to their shared history and following her heart, Leanora must decide: is survival more important than love?
Eloia Born is the first in a two book series.
