The Phone Box at the Edge of the World

by Laura Imai Messina

A moving, unforgettable novel, inspire by a true story

We all have something to tell those we have lost. . .

On a windy hill in Japan, in a garden overlooking the sea, stands a disused phone box. For years, people have travelled to visit the phone box, to pick up the receiver and speak into the wind: to pass their messages to loved ones no longer with us.

When Yui loses her mother and daughter in the tsunami, she wonders how she will carry on. One day she hears of the phone box, and decides to make her own pilgrimage there, to speak to the people she loved the most. But when you have lost everything, the right words can be the hardest to find. . .

Then Yui meets Takeshi, a bereaved husband whose own daughter has stopped talking in the wake of their loss. What happens next will warm your heart, even when it feels as though it is breaking. . .
