'Dazzling.' The Times'Exceptional.' Guardian'Brilliant.' Observer'Extraordinary.' Financial TimesWinner of the Encore Award 2022. Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021. November 1944. A German rocket strikes London, and five young lives are atomised in an instant.

November 1944. That rocket never lands. A single second in time is altered, and five young lives go on - to experience all the unimaginable changes of the twentieth century.

Because maybe there are always other futures. Other chances.

From the best-selling, prize-winning author of Golden Hill, Light Perpetual is a story of the everyday, the miraculous and the everlasting. Ingenious and profound, full of warmth and beauty, it is a sweeping and intimate celebration of the gift of life.
