How far would you go to protect your children?
Book clubs will find much to talk about in
Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton
From the author of the acclaimed bestseller Sister comes a gripping, thrilling story of a mother who will do anything to protect her child.
The school was on fire, and Grace’s last memory is of trying to reach her daughter, Jenny, trapped inside the inferno. While their bodies are frantically cared for by doctors, Grace and Jenny awaken in the hospital in a strange in-between state. When they learn that someone purposefully set the fire, and Jenny may still be in grave danger from someone who wants her dead, Grace realizes she may be the only one who can discover who might be responsible. The police are looking at Adam, Jenny’s younger brother, who is struck mute by the horror he witnessed and can’t defend himself when he is accused of the arson.
But a mother will do anything to protect her children, and Grace will do whatever it takes to save Adam and Jenny and find out who committed the crime that rocked their lives.
“Lupton enters the highly charged ring where the best psychological detective writers spar, her hands raised in a victory clench…”–New York Times Book Review
