The Waiting Game

book | Fiction | Aug 2015
UK & Comm → Hodder (Ed. Charlotte Hardman)
Nessa Bruce had waited for her husband to return home from Afghanistan for what felt like forever. Now the moment was finally here.

But Jake Bruce didn't come home…

Nessa’s life – and that of her rebellious daughter Poppy – is turned upside down in an instant. What has happened to the illusive man at the centre of their world? They hold onto the hope that he is still out there somewhere, alive…  but, as time passes by, Nessa is forced to look at her life, the decisions she has made and the secrets she has kept. For maybe somewhere lies the answer to the question – where is the man she loves?
