In her debut novel, This is How It Ends, award-winning journalist Kathleen MacMahon delivers a story on unexpected and life-changing love that won't soon be forgotten.
It begins in Autumn, 2008, on the coast of Dublin. Bruno, an American, has come to Ireland to search for his roots. Addie, an out-of-work architect, is recovering from heartbreak while taking care of her infirm father. When their worlds collide, they experience a connection unlike any they've previously felt. But soon their newfound love will be tested in ways they never imagined possible.
"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)
"It has 'future classic' written all over it." (Glamour)
"An exceptional novel . . . It is truly a story for our time. This is How it Ends signals the belated arrival of a new Irish commercial writer with an extraordinary gift and a voice that is entirely her own." (Irish Independent)
