Light Perpetual


Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021

Light Perpetual is our March 2022 Book Club choice

A German rocket strikes London, and five young lives are atomised in an instant. November 1944.
That rocket never lands. A single second in time is altered, and five young lives go on – to experience all the unimaginable changes of the twentieth century. Because maybe there are always other futures.  Other chances.


From the best-selling, prize-winning author of Golden Hill, Light Perpetual is a story of the every day, the miraculous and the everlasting. Ingenious and profound, full of warmth and beauty, it is a sweeping and intimate celebration of the gift of life.
