"Because we can."
Trying to settle down after ten years spent country-hopping, Anna is still adjusting to her new life. Independent-minded and strong, she's suddenly struggling with an unease she can't quite name – and a desire she hasn't felt in years.
What does she see in the attractive green eyes of the political assistant she's started to date?
And where is that group of climate change "activists" leading her she has just joined? Is something that used to be 'other people, elsewhere' really becoming so personal, drastic action is the only option? Is she prepared to find out?
Settling down, it seems, is becoming the most unsettling experience Anna has had in her life.
'From Here' addresses one of the biggest challenges we face – climate change. It's a novel about the "activism" of ordinary people, and about a women's quest for love, and a place in the world.

"A slow-burning, contemplative and disarming novel. Internal personal struggles set at a time of environmental crisis have never been more entertaining." - Kit Caless, editor Influx Press
