How it Ends is a sweeping and turbulent drama that explores the widespread fears of a post-war era, where one inspirational young woman looks to find her place - no matter the cost. The latest novel from bestselling author Saskia Sarginson is our pick for May's book club and, as ever, we have 50 copies to give away.
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, 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...
Saskia Sarginson is the Richard and Judy bestselling author of The Twins, who last year became an Amazon top-ten bestselling author. She recently had a regular column in The Guardian about her life in south London with her four children.
How it Ends is published by Little Brown and is available online and from all good booksellers. If you've received a copy of How It Ends as part of our giveaway, you'll need to add your questions for Saskia to this thread by the end of the month.
