“A gripping and emotional story which, although set in a past era, has chilling implications for the present day. How It Ends is an engrossing read with endearing characters thrust into traumatic circumstances. It stayed with me long after the last page as its subject matter is unfortunately still very relevant.” Lisa Ballantyne
Sometimes it’s safer not to finish what you’ve started…
1957: Within a year of arriving at an American airbase in Suffolk, the loving, law-abiding Delaney family is destroyed. Did they know something they weren’t allowed to know? Did they find something they weren’t supposed to find? Hedy is the only one left standing, a rebellious girl cast adrift in a world of post-war anxiety – a girl who has the courage to question what really went on behind military closed doors.
Hedy’s journey to the truth leads her to read a manuscript that her talented twin brother had started months before he died. He called the novel The Wonderful, a story inspired by an experience in the forest surrounding the airbase perimeter. Only through deciding to finish what her brother started does Hedy begin to piece together what happened to her family.
But would she have continued if she’d known then what she knows now?
Sometimes, it’s safer not to finish what you’ve started.
How It Ends will be published in 2018.
