Summary
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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Heart-breaking tragedy and unthinkable decisions lie at the center of Mackintosh's fourth novel, a turn towards a different type of suspense. Max and Pip Adams are the perfect couple, and they're living the perfect life until their three-year-old son, Dylan, becomes critically ill. Forced to make a choice about his care and future, they find themselves at an impasse, unable to agree on which path is right. But what if it were possible to go down both roads? Mackintosh uses a clever combination of alternate narration and parallel stories to explore what happens to the Adams' relationship if each of the possibilities is chosen. Inspired by a similar situation with her own son, Mackintosh makes readers question what makes a choice right or wrong. How can you move forward if you never know whether or not you did the right thing? Max and Pip are thoroughly relatable, compelling, and as are most people, complex. Sure to keep fans of Jodi Picoult or of Tayari Jones' An American Marriage (2018) thinking about issues of morality and marriage long after the last page.--Tracy Babiasz Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Mackintosh veers from the thrillers for which she is known (I Let You Go, etc.) into quieter, but no less captivating, territory. Loving couple and fond parents Max and Pip Adams, who live in London, are devastated when their two-year-old son, Dylan, is diagnosed with a brain tumor. After an operation and the growth of the tumor leave him with a severely diminished quality of life, they must make the difficult decision whether to attempt to prolong his life or allow him to die naturally. When they find that they cannot agree on an answer, the case is taken to a judge to decide. Then, in brief, alternating chapters, Mackintosh imagines how life would proceed for the family and its members under both outcomes-though the imagined futures are perhaps not as different as one might expect. Mackintosh has a workmanlike prose style, and some may feel that she lets her characters off too easily, but this is at its core a novel about hope and recovery from loss, and the author's dextrous handling of the twin story lines will keep readers rapt. This is tailor-made for book clubs and for fans of Jodi Picoult. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
