From New York Times bestselling author Clare Mackintosh comes a deeply moving and page-turning novel about an impossible choice—and the two paths fate could take.

“A beautifully written novel, compelling and clever, tender and true. I can’t stop thinking about it.”—Liane Moriarty

“Tailor-made for book clubs and for fans of Jodi Picoult.”—Publishers Weekly

Max and Pip are the strongest couple you know. They’re best friends, lovers—unshakable. But then their son gets sick and the doctors put the question of his survival into their hands. For the first time, Max and Pip can’t agree. They each want a different future for their son.
What if they could have both?
A gripping and propulsive exploration of love, marriage, parenthood, and the road not taken, After the End brings one unforgettable family from unimaginable loss to a surprising, satisfying, and redemptive ending and the life they are fated to find. With the emotional power of Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper, Mackintosh helps us to see that sometimes the end is just another beginning.

Story Locale: Chicago, IL; South of London, England

A STRIKING NEW DIRECTION: Clare Mackintosh moves away from suspense with an issue-driven women’s fiction novel, page-turning and emotional in the vein of Jodi Picoult. Mackintosh’s suspense novels always featured three-dimensional characters and complex relationships. She now brings those skills to women’s fiction.

SIMULTANEOUS WORLDWIDE RELEASE: After the End will be published simultaneously in the US and UK

SIGNIFICANT ACCOLADES: For her debut novel, I Let You Go, Mackintosh received the Theakston Award for Best Novel of the Year at Harrogate in July 2016 and the Prix Polar International, which was won in 2015 by Paula Hawkins

UK SENSATION: All three of Mackintosh’s previous books were instant Sunday Times bestsellers; both Let Me Lie and I See You hit #1. Her books have sold more than two million copies worldwide.

MAJOR BOOK CLUB PICK: Both of Clare’s first two novels were Richard and Judy picks, an exceptional honor awarded very few authors

WELL-REVIEWED AUTHOR: Clare has enthusiastic praise from the New York Times; starred Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and Library Journal reviews; and glowing blurbs from Ruth Ware, Fiona Barton, Paula Hawkins, Jojo Moyes, Lee Child, Mary Kubica, Jeffrey Archer, and Alexandra Burt, among many, many others. She brings the same quality of writing to this new direction.

MEDIA-SAVVY AUTHOR: Clare reaches over 11,000 readers a month on her personal blog and has grown her Twitter to 15 followers, up over four thousand followers over the past year

CROSS PROMOTION: Simultaneous publication with the Putnam hardcover. Also available as an unabridged audiobook from Random House Audio.
