"They change their sky, not their soul, who rush across the sea." - Horace

Twelve stories and two poems of power and powerlessness, of tragedy, of courage, of loss, of love, of regret and of never looking back, of transition and transcendence. Twelve tales and two poems about things that people fight to take with them when forced to run, and about things they never forgive themselves for leaving behind. From fantasy worlds of merfolk and witches to almost-real worlds of people who are nearly just like us, these are stories to touch everyone's heart... and a book which will go on to help those who are living similar stories every day.
