Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize
One hot August day a family drives to a mountain clearing to collect birch wood. Jenny, the mother, is in charge of lopping any small limbs off the logs with a hatchet.

But then something unimaginably shocking happens, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction.
