GIVEAWAY: 3 copies of Ever Rest by Roz Morris – NEPAL and LONDON

4th July 2021

We are delighted to offer 3 copies of Ever Rest by Roz Morris, set mainly in Nepal and London.

UK ONLY

3 copies of Ever Rest by Roz Morris

Twenty years ago, Hugo and Ash were on top of the world. As the acclaimed rock band Ashbirds they were poised for superstardom. Then Ash went missing, lost in a mountaineering accident, and the lives of Hugo and everyone around him were changed forever. Irrepressible, infuriating, mesmerizing Ash left a hole they could never hope to fill.

Two decades on, Ash’s fiancée Elza is still struggling to move on, her private grief outshone by the glare of publicity. The loss of such a rock icon is a worldwide tragedy. Hugo is now a recluse in Nepal, shunning his old life. Robert, an ambitious session player, feels himself both blessed and cursed by his brief time with Ashbirds, unable to achieve recognition in his own right. While the Ashbirds legend burns brighter than ever, Elza, Hugo and Robert are as stranded as if they were the ones lost in the ice. How far must they go to come back to life?

A lyrical, page-turning novel in the tradition of Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano, Ever Rest asks how we carry on after catastrophic loss. It will also strike a chord with fans of Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings and Taylor Jenkins Reid’s Daisy Jones for its people bonded by an unforgettable time; fans of Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto, for music as a primal and romantic force; and Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air for the deadly and irresistible wildernesses that surround our comfortable world.

    Sadly she died in 2014 but Maya Angelou was an inspiration to so many (including me) Her words of wisdom are timeless. In the 70s she said “You only are free when you realize you belong no place — you belong every place — no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great ” As appropriate today as when she spoke these words. I consider myself a strong woman but she takes strength to another level. It would have been such a privilege to meet her.

    Hello, I would like to meet Boris Cyrulnik, a French child psychologist and author. I find his backstory really inspiring. He was born in France to a Jewish family, and where he lived was occupied in WW2, and both his parents died, and he survived through luck. I would love to talk to him about that.
