Caryl Lewis

Hay Festival Book of the Month June 2022

Moving between the wild Welsh coast and war-torn Syria, Drift is a love story with a difference and debut English novel from the acclaimed Welsh writer Caryl Lewis.

Nefyn has always been an enigma, even to her brother Joseph with whom she lives in a small cottage above a blustery cove. Hamza is a Syrian mapmaker, incarcerated in a military base a few miles up the coast. A violent storm will bring these two lost souls together - but other forces will soon try to tear them apart... Drift is a hypnotic tale of lost identity, the quest for home and the wondrous resilience of the human spirit.
