Maggie O'Farrell's groundbreaking debut: a stunning, best-selling story of wrenching love and grief

AFTER YOU'D GONE is the groundbreaking debut novel from the Costa Award winning Maggie O'Farrell, author of THIS MUST BE THE PLACE and THE HAND THAT FIRST HELD MINE. It is a stunning, best-selling novel of wrenching love and grief.

A distraught young woman boards a train at King's Cross to return to her family in Scotland. Six hours later, she catches sight of something so terrible in a mirror at Waverley Station that she gets on the next train back to London.

AFTER YOU'D GONE follows Alice's mental journey through her own past, after a traffic accident has left her in a coma. A love story that is also a story of absence, and of how our choices can reverberate through the generations, it slowly draws us closer to a dark secret at a family's heart.
