November 1944. 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 everyday, 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.
