Product description

Review

It will leave you a weeping mess just as Em and Dex's story did. It will also leave you feeling utterly bereft to no longer be in its company (Observer)

Be warned. MacMahon subtly weaves her readers so tightly into her story that when she rolls out her shattering ending it's best to be alone. Stave off the tears if you can: I was a wreck (Sunday Times)

When you have long forgotten many other fictional lovers, there is something about Addie and Bruno, their past and their world, that will not go away (Maeve Binchy, The Irish Times)

This richly poetic first novel combines a strong contemporary feel with a sense of timelessness. MacMahon's prose fizzes from page one. As the title suggests this is a poignant book yet remarkably life-affirming thanks to the sheer quality of MacMahon's writing. Her characterisation is deft and believable. She has perfect control of tone and a gift for piercing metaphor. I predict a glittering future (Daily Express)

It has 'future classic' written all over it (Glamour)

An exceptional novel . . . It is truly a story for our time (Irish Independent)

Kathleen MacMahon's prose could not appear more effortless or beautiful . . . The twist in this tale is utterly unexpected and satisfyingly unpredictable . . . A bittersweet novel that will no doubt become a book-club darling (Sunday Independent)

A tender love story. A book about love, family, children and that glorious sense of being alive (Irish Examiner)

This is a love story like no other (Mirror)

An all-consuming love story . . . that can't fail to enchant you (Heat)

I found myself relating to every character, charmed into enjoying their world and not wanting it to end (Stylist)

This is an outstanding debut novel which will linger long in your mind (Red Magazine)

The force of it takes you by stealth until you realise you're swallowing furiously, to keep down the lump in your throat (Psychologies)

. . . crunchingly big finish which packs an undeniable punch (Daily Mail)

Is MacMahon the new Donoghue, capable of winning plaudits from critics and sales from readers eager to see their own lives reflected in fiction? (Sunday Business Post Ireland)

Summer 2012's One Day, this is a love story with an ominous feel that haunts from page one (Easy Living)

Sometimes you read a book that takes your breath away - this was the book . . . This Is How It Ends grabs you very gently at the beginning and urges you to continue, it wraps you up in its charm and leaves you bereft (in a good way). An emotional rollercoaster of two people thrown together, at a strange time in a less than ordinary way, I defy you not to be moved (Woman's Way)

Throughout the book, the narrative remains both beautiful and understated - and is perhaps all the more dramatic for it (Fabulous Magazine)

This wonderful new author is a force to be reckoned with (Dubray Books)

If you enjoyed One Day, you'll love this. Utterly charming and packed with humour, this novel is carried by its characters' charisma. Completely engrossing right up until the unbearably moving conclusion (Sunday Mirror)

This book is as powerful in the early, glorious unfurling of an unexpected, unlooked for love as it is in the build to the gut-wrenching finale (Star Magazine)

Wonderfully written, MacMahon creates characters that will linger long in your mind. Keep the tissues nearby, you will need them (Daily Express)
