From the Editor

I’m a sucker for survival stories. So imagine my delight when this, the ultimate survival tale, landed on my desk. The book came to me in an unusual way. I was talking to a literary agent about my love for disaster novels. Which led me to ashamedly admit that despite my fondness for the theme, I’ve done almost nothing to prepare for any sort of emergency. I have a first-aid kit, some bottled water and a few cans of beans, but that’s about it. As a mother, I know I should do better for my family, but taking the time to stockpile more supplies means I’d have to seriously consider the possibility of a real catastrophe occurring in this unpredictable world. And I just don’t want to. The guilt nags at me, but I prefer to carry on, tra-la-la, pretending nothing terrible could ever happen.

This confession led us to imagine a novel in which an ill-prepared mother has to fight for her children’s lives in the aftermath of a disaster. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to see her fierce mama-bear instincts play out against taut suspense? That week the agent tweeted out the general idea with the hashtag #manuscriptwishlist. A day later she had Jo Furniss’s masterful manuscript in hand.

Jo had written All the Little Children in the months following the birth of her first child. She’d spent hours walking in the woods around her remote home with her baby strapped to her chest. As she walked, she let her imagination roam, wondering what it would feel like to be isolated, desperate to protect her child after disaster struck. How far would she go? What would she be willing to risk? From there sprang the idea for this adrenaline-fuelled thriller. When I received the manuscript, I tore through the pages, completely absorbed, asking myself over and over, ‘What would I do in that situation? Could I be that brave?’

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to stock up on a few more emergency provisions. This may not prevent disaster, but I do hope it will keep maternal guilt at bay. Thank you, Jo.

Product description

Product Description

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

When a family camping trip takes a dark turn, how far will one mother go to keep her family safe?

Struggling with working-mother guilt, Marlene Greene hopes a camping trip in the forest will provide quality time with her three young children—until they see fires in the distance, columns of smoke distorting the sweeping view. Overnight, all communication with the outside world is lost.

Knowing something terrible has happened, Marlene suspects that the isolation of the remote campsite is all that’s protecting her family. But the arrival of a lost boy reveals they are not alone in the woods, and as the unfolding disaster ravages the land, more youngsters seek refuge under her wing. The lives of her own children aren’t the only ones at stake.

When their sanctuary is threatened, Marlene faces the mother of all dilemmas: Should she save her own kids or try to save them all?
