- Not available
For Maggie Rayburn, wife, mother and secretary at a munitions plant, life is pleasant, predictable and secure. When she finds proof of a high-level cover-up on her boss's desk, she impulsively takes it, turning her world upside down. Propelled by a desire to do good - and a new-found taste for excitement - Maggie starts to see injustice everywhere. Soon, her bottom drawer is filled with 'evidence', her town has turned against her, and she must decide how far she will go for the truth.
Meanwhile, in Iraq, Captain Penn Sinclair's hasty orders have disastrous results. In an attempt at atonement, he reunites with three survivors to expose the truth about the war. Now and Again examines the interconnectedness of lives, the limits of knowledge and the consequences of doing the right thing.

With consummate command of narrative, Charlotte Rogan nimbly brings together whistleblowers and soldiers in a damning-and page-turning-critique of America's military-industrial complex and its massive amount of collateral damage. It's the novel we deserve for the war we didn't -- Teddy Wayne, author of The Love Song of Jonny Valentine and Kapitoil
Now & Again doesn't disappoint. All the ingredients of a tense thriller with a domestic slant that got my heart involved -- Sarra Manning * Red *
Dazzling layering of different people and different stories and of the leaps their minds make as they learn to open their eyes. The prose is strong, supple and sometimes infused with a magisterial rhythm that reflects the novel's commanding scope. This is a novel of the American dream, and of how that dream is shattered and betrayed -- Christina Patterson * Sunday Times *
