Britain is divided, and Mara is on the wrong side

1989, the Berlin Wall opens. The upheavals in her homeland are an opportunity for Mara—free to travel, she comes to Britain, falls in love and never leaves.

2016, the UK votes to leave the European Union, and once again, Mara is at the centre of a changing world.

She's built her life in Britain: a wife, a career and a cottage in the countryside. But now Mara worries she’ll be forced to return to a Germany she no longer knows.

Faced with bureaucratic inflexibility and administrative failures, Mara needs to prove her right to remain. But do the events of her first years in Britain hold the key to whether she will be allowed to stay?

Cold Island explores the personal cost of Brexit
