After the End is a powerful exploration of grief, love, and the way in which all decisions—both large and small—can have life-changing results. This book will leave readers rethinking their own choices and wondering what might have happened if they'd acted differently. Jill Santopolo, author of The Light We Lost and More Than Words 
“[Clare Mackintosh is] a natural writer, and her powers of observation are keen....An unlikely page turner...A perceptive, skillfully told story. Kirkus Reviews 
Clare Mackintosh’s complex, riveting page-turner grapples with hard questions without ever straying from its emotional true north. I fell in love with the compelling voices of Pip, Max, and Leila as they explored the bravest and most terrifying words in the English language: What if. After the End is gorgeous, heart-wrenching, hope-soaked, and honest. It made me feel a thousand things, and it also made me think. Get an extra copy for a friend; you’re going to need to talk about this one. Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Never Have I Ever 
Both utterly heart rending and incredibly uplifting, After the End is the most moving book you'll read this year. Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone

Clare Mackintosh’s After the End is absolutely compulsive reading, a heart-pounding family story with a child’s life in the balance.

Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean
“Mackintosh veers from the thrillers for which she is known into quieter, but no less captivating, territory...[After the End] is tailor-made for book clubs and for fans of Jodi Picoult. Publishers Weekly“This stunning book is something of a departure for bestselling thriller writer Mackintosh, who questions what it costs to stand up for what you believe in.
After the End is a beautifully written novel, compelling and clever, tender and true. I can’t stop thinking about it.” Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times bestselling author
