An absolutely stunning second novel from the author of SISTER.

When love recognises no boundaries . . .

Black smoke stains a summer blue sky. A school is on fire. One mother, Grace, sees the smoke and runs. She knows her teenage daughter Jenny is inside.

Grace runs along to tree-lined driveway, which Jenny had walked down only a few hours earlier. She goes into the burning building to rescue her child.

Afterwards, Grace must find the identity of the arsonist and protect her family from the person who's still intent on destroying them.

Afterwards, she must confront the face of evil and discover the limitlessness of love.

    In AFTERWARDS, we see a master's touch on every page. Uncompromising emotional impact, a poet's sonorous style and a gripping story all come together to make this a transcendent literary experience. I guarantee this novel will touch everyone - Jeffery Deaver

    Extraordinary...heart-stopping...[an] ingenious thriller - Mail on Sunday

    I became insanely gripped ... The word compelling is used lightly of mystery and crime novels this one will define it for you - Daily Mail

    In a LOVELY BONES-style conceit ... Lupton works her theme of the corrosive effects of ambition with insight and gusto - Guardian

    The smartly crafted characters create an addictive whodunit ... [it] flits between a fast-paced criminal investigation and the beautifully written musings of Grace as she hears that she and Jenny will probably never wake up making this an unmissable read - Heat

    Loved THE TIME TRAVELLER'S WIFE? Well this is even better - Company

    Compulsive reading right from the start ... Pacy and compelling - She

    As with Lupton's debut SISTER, AFTERWARDS has bestseller written all over it. She has found a way of combining searing emotion with page-turning plotting - Daily Mirror
