The Beginning and End of Us
The Beginning and End of Us is a heart-breaking, evocative and spiritual journey, full of wisdom and beauty, about how to find peace in every moment. Fans of The Color of Heaven series, The Alchemist and Where the Forest Meets the Stars will fall in love with this sweeping novel of self-discovery.
This is a story about a mysterious young woman who works at a coffee house on Delancey Street, New York. Nobody knows where she comes from, or why she makes them feel so passionately alive when she’s near. She dreams of what her true purpose in the world will be until the day she meets a man who makes her laugh, yet keeps the secrets of his heart hidden away from the world. But then suddenly it all falls apart…
Determined not to be broken by what happened, she makes the difficult decision to leave and let go, to understand who – and what – she is through the magic of the world, and the people she meets far from home. It is a journey across continents – from the chilled, glassy lakes of rural Ireland to the taste of wild monsoon rain in Thailand, in the arms of a dark-eyed artist she meets along the way…
But in searching the world for answers, she finds the answer to a question she never even knew how to ask: what lies beyond heartbreak, and is true happiness a person, a moment or a secret to unlock inside yourself?
An unputdownable, life-affirming pilgrimage across the globe, filled with ordinary yet extraordinary people, The Beginning and End of Us will stay with you long after you’ve turned the final page.
