The Week at World's End

Pre-Order   Ships 1 March 2022


The hotly anticipated new standalone from the Queen of Historical Fiction, Emma Carroll.

Nothing ever happens in boring old World's End Close. So when Stevie Fisher discovers a runaway girl hiding in her coal shed, the first thing she does is fetch her best friend, Ray. Both are dying for a bit of adventure in their lives, and when the girl begs for help, they readily agree.

Yet Stevie and Ray soon realise they've taken on more than they bargained for. The girl, Anna, reveals she's on the run from people who are trying to poison her. Meanwhile, on the news, the Americans and Russians are arguing over missiles in Cuba. The grown-ups are anxious. There's talk of nuclear war.

As the threat of war grows, Anna's behaviour becomes more mysterious. And when Stevie unearths a dark family secret, she wonders if Anna has come to World's End Close on purpose, with a special message just for her . . .

This enthralling, heartwarming thriller is the perfect novel for our tumultuous times.
