Until the whispers began, Joshua was like all the other village boys, helping out at the market, making a little money from the tourists, getting up to mischief. So what if his father was the only butcher in a village of fishermen, a loner who preferred to spend his evenings carving wood? Is it true what everyone is saying — that Joshua’s father is a ‘mountain man’, one of the people feared and mistrusted by the villagers? When Joshua’s life takes an unexpected turn, he discovers that being different does matter. Maybe it’s not enough to be just Joshua?
