Gizzard’s Gap, a desolate impasse at the heart of an endless war. Cleo guards her side of the canyon, lost in her sense of duty, doing her best to raise a young daughter. When her old childhood librarian shows up, Cleo borrows military texts and manuals but also picture books she loved as a girl. As memories flood back, she must choose whether to be a soldier first or a mother.
