In the wake of the 2011 tsunami, Ruth discovers a Hello Kitty lunchbox washed up on the shore of her beach home in British Columbia.
Within it lies a diary that expresses the hopes, heartbreak and dreams of a young girl desperate for someone to understand her.
Each turn of the page pulls Ruth deeper into the mystery of Nao's life, and forever changes her in a way neither could foresee.
Weaving across continents and decades, A Tale for the Time Being is an extraordinary novel about our shared humanity and the search for home.
