In the dead of night, in the height of summer, a house burns. There, covered in ash, unharmed, except for her loss of memory, a child is found.
Eva, when no one claims her, is taken into care.
Dan, the firefighter who found Eva, mourns the loss of his own daughter and faces a future estranged from his wife.
Carrie-Anne, near the burnt out house, lives a half life sleeping through the day and drinking away the night.
Ashes brings these three stories together in a beautiful and moving novel about finding hope even in the darkest place.
