It’s been years since Skye Elliot has seen her biological father. He left when she was 12, breaking her heart, and her life hasn’t exactly been going uphill since. A drug user and alcoholic, Skye is given a choice after a car accident: jail or rehab. It takes eight months to get clean, but the day Skye is released, she has one plan: to be a good mother to her four-year-old daughter, Gracie. But first she has to find her.When no one shows up to pick up Skye from the centre - not her often-married mother who loves plastic surgery more than her granddaughter, not even Rocky, Gracie’s dad, a bull rider and the man who introduced Skye to drugs - she gets a surprise visitor: her father, on horseback, with Skye’s horse, Lightning, on a lead. Together they set off on a unsettling quest to find Gracie and to forge some kind of relationship that transcends the hurt and anger that has been brewing for almost a decade.
