November 2017 Indie Next List


“As the floodwaters rise on London, a first-time mother takes her newborn son and flees for higher ground, seeking a safe haven from the environmental collapse and the chaos that will follow it. Luminous and sparse, heartbreaking yet hopeful, The End We Start From is a lyrical rumination on environment, normalcy in the midst of crisis, new motherhood, unavoidable endings, and tentative beginnings. A slim and stunning debut whose echoes will be thunderous.”
— Rebecca Speas, One More Page, Arlington, VA

Winter 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List


“This book had me spellbound and left me chilled to the bone. The writing is beautiful, lyrical, and sparse—a sharp contrast to the chaotic world in which the book takes place, where an environmental disaster has upended society just as the main character gives birth. This is a story that feels both dystopian and topical, both biblical and new. And it will, implausibly, leave you feeling full of hope.”
— Molly Parent, Point Reyes Books, Point Reyes Station, CA

Description


As London is submerged below floodwaters, a woman gives birth to her first child. 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. The story traces fear and wonder as the baby grows, thriving and content against all the odds.
