Friday Freebie: The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

Congratulations to Bart Zimmer, winner of last week’s Friday Freebie: Savage Country, the new novel by Robert Olmstead.

This week, one lucky reader will win a copy of The End We Start From by Megan Hunter. I am thrilled to be giving away this novel in particular, because it’s one of my favorite books of the year. The End We Start From left me breathless and speechless, so I’m grateful to Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl With a Pearl Earring, who put it so eloquently: “The End We Start From is strange and powerful, and very apt for these uncertain times. I was moved, terrified, uplifted―sometimes all three at once. It takes skill to manage that, and Hunter has a poet’s understanding of how to make each word count.” Keep scrolling for more information about the book and how to enter the contest....

As London is submerged below floodwaters, a woman gives birth to her first child, Z. Days later, she and her baby are forced to leave their home in search of safety. They head north through a newly dangerous country seeking refuge from place to place. The story traces fear and wonder as the baby grows, thriving and content against all the odds. The End We Start From is an indelible and elemental first book―a lyrical vision of the strangeness and beauty of new motherhood, and a tale of endurance in the face of ungovernable change.
