Description

Friend of the shop and fabulous author Clare Mackintosh is BACK!


After the End

Max and Pip are the strongest couple you know. They’re best friends, lovers—unshakable. But then their son gets sick and the doctors put the question of his survival into their hands. For the first time, Max and Pip can’t agree. They each want a different future for their son.

What if they could have both?

A gripping and propulsive exploration of love, marriage, parenthood, and the road not taken, After the End brings one unforgettable family from unimaginable loss to a surprising, satisfying, and redemptive ending and the life they are fated to find. With the emotional power of Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper, Mackintosh helps us to see that sometimes the end is just another beginning.


A note from Clare :


Clare says: Twelve years ago my son became critically ill, and my husband and I were asked to make a decision that would change all our lives forever. Every day since, I have questioned whether we made the right choice; what would have happened if we’d taken a different path. AFTER THE END is about those ‘what ifs’. It’s about a couple – Max and Pip – who love each other very much, but who love their son more. It’s about learning to come to terms with our choices, and finding a new way to live again. It’s about how to be happy again, when everything we loved has been lost. It isn’t a thriller, but it’s suspenseful in the way that matters most. What’s morally right? What should the parents do? What would you do? I hope you will never find yourself in the situation that Max and Pip are in – that my husband and I were in – but you will, I’m sure, have found yourself standing at a crossroads, unable to decide which path to follow. Life is full of these sorts of choices, and every time we wish we could see both destinations, travel both roads. In AFTER THE END, we can.
