The Things That Keep Us Here by Carla Buckley
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


It's every mother's nightmare. And it's getting closer. For Ann Brooks, it's been a tough year. But it's about to get worse. Still mourning for the baby she lost and the marriage it cost her, Ann's bringing up her two young daughters alone. She's about to discover just how strong she can be. Panic has gripped America. A deadly killer is moving across countries and oceans, a virus so deadly it kills every other person it infects. As society grinds to a halt and ordinary families quarantine themselves in their own homes, desperate to avoid its spread, Ann must face her worst fears. But how do you protect your family from a threat you cannot see? Sealed inside the family home she once loved, Ann, Maddie and Kate will have to battle the cold and the dark, food and water shortages, and the greed and violence of their former neighbours if they're to make it through. Harrowing and deeply moving, Carla Buckley's debut novel sheds light on the choices we make in the darkest of times, a powerfully compelling thriller that is only too real.
