    'Terrific.' Richard Russo
    'A revelation.' Megan Abbott
    'Remarkable.' Rene Denfeld

    Between looking after her brother, working two low-paid jobs, and trying to take part-time college classes, Lynette is dangerously tired. Every penny she's earned for years, she's put into savings, trying to scrape together enough to take out a mortgage on the house she rents with her mother. Finally becoming a homeowner in their rapidly gentrifying Portland neighbourhood could offer Lynette the kind of freedoms she's never had. But, when the plan is derailed, Lynette must embark on a desperate odyssey of hope and anguish.

    Written with all Willy Vlautin's characteristic and heart-wrenching empathy, The Night Always Comes holds up a mirror to a society which leaves too many people only a step away from falling between the cracks.


    What readers are saying:
    'Amazing . . . Vlautin hit the nail on the head with this. I could not stop thinking about the characters and where the story would take them.'

    'WOW. This book hit me hard . . . I was on the edge of my seat.'

    'The book pulls you into the story and you can't wait to find out what happens next.'

    'Fabulous . . . part suspenseful action and part deep character study.'
