Product Details


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 of The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies
“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 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 

“Heart-breaking tragedy and unthinkable decisions lie at the center . . . Sure to keep fans of Jodi Picoult or of Tayari Jones’ An American Marriage thinking about issues of morality and marriage long after the last page.”

“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

“Clare Mackintosh’s After the End is absolutely compulsive reading, a heart-pounding family story with a child’s life in the balance. So skilled is this author, that, just when the reader thinks there is no possible resolution, another door opens. You may think you’ve experienced medical drama before, but you haven’t, not this way.”
Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

“[Clare Mackintosh is] a natural writer, and her powers of observation are keen . . .  An unlikely page turner . . . A perceptive, skillfully told story.”
— Kirkus Reviews

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 
“A fiercely honest and heartfelt examination of a family’s most wrenching moments. The intimacy and grace of this novel will both break your heart and fill you with hope. It’s an emotional tour de force.”
Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Map of the Heart

“Unforgettable and profoundly moving, this is a novel about the bottomless human capacity for love and endurance, even in the most heartbreaking circumstances.”
Rosie Walsh, New York Times bestselling author of Ghosted

“Clare Mackintosh just broke my heart, and then she mended it again. One of the most moving stories I have ever read. It’s perfect.”
—Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble With Goats and Sheep and Three Things About Elsie
