Synopsis

'I was moved, terrified, uplifted - sometimes all three at once' Tracy Chevalier In the midst of a mysterious environmental crisis, as London is submerged below flood waters, a woman gives birth to her first child, Z. Days later, the family are forced to leave their home in search of safety. As they move from place to place, shelter to shelter, their journey traces both fear and wonder as Z's small fists grasp at the things he sees, as he grows and stretches, thriving and content against all the odds. This is a story of new motherhood in a terrifying setting: a familiar world made dangerous and unstable, its people forced to become refugees. Startlingly beautiful, Megan Hunter's The End We Start From is a gripping novel that paints an imagined future as realistic as it is frightening. And yet, though the country is falling apart around them, this family's world - of new life and new hope - sings with love.

Customer Reviews

Unfortunately I found this novella very difficult to get in to due to its style. It's had great reviews from other people though so it probably just isn't my personal taste.

I absolutely loved this book. It's a short read - the protagonist says very little, only hinting at how the world has changed, but what she hints at is heartbreaking. Highly recommended.

Staff Choice

This is one of those books that you race through in one sitting - partly because the prose is so lovely and simple and terrifying, and partly because those words fill you with dread and running through them without looking over your shoulder seems the only way to make it... a strange and elegant novella about love and fear and motherhood.
