From the Editor

I first read After You Left almost a year ago, and I still remember it as vividly as if it was yesterday—I was astounded by the relatability of the characters, the clarity of the author’s prose and the poignancy of her words.

The novel begins with newly-wed Alice waking up to a note from her husband, Justin, saying he’s left. With no explanation for his disappearance and unable to get through to him, Alice is left reeling, with nothing but questions. As Alice struggles with her new reality, she meets Evelyn, and although she is forty years her elder, her heartbreaking story has haunting parallels with Alice’s.

Both storylines are equally compelling, and I was struck by the similarities between these two women from different generations and how they share the experience of suddenly having their life’s plans thrown into disarray. I marvelled at the way the author communicates the depth of their experiences, and how Alice and Evelyn are able to take solace in each other’s situations, bringing clarity to their own lives.

As the mystery of both storylines unfolds, After You Left provides a powerful exploration of the devastating nature of relationships. It reminded me of the immediate and enduring fallout of the heartbreaking choices we make for love. It’s a story that, a year on, continues to resonate with me.

Product description

Product Description

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

You want to know what the worst thing is? It’s not the embarrassment, or the looks on people’s faces when I tell them what happened. It isn’t the pain of him not being there—loneliness is manageable. The worst thing is not knowing why.

When Justin walks out on Alice on their honeymoon, with no explanation apart from a cryptic note, Alice is left alone and bewildered, her life in pieces.

Then she meets Evelyn, a visitor to the gallery where she works. It’s a seemingly chance encounter, but Alice gradually learns that Evelyn has motives, and a heartbreaking story, of her own. And that story has haunting parallels with Alice’s life.

As Alice delves into the mystery of why Justin left her, the questions are obvious. But the answers may lie in the most unlikely of places…
