From the author of the international bestseller Crow Lake and the Booker-longlisted Richard and Judy pick The Other Side of the Bridge Twenty-one-year-old Megan Cartwright has never been outside the small town she was born in but one winter's day in 1966 she leaves everything behind and sets out for London. Ahead of her is a glittering new life, just waiting for her to claim it. But left behind, her family begins to unravel. Disturbing letters from home begin to arrive and torn between her independence and family ties, Megan must make an impossible choice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Tender and surprising... A vivid and evocative tale" * New York Times *

"Road Ends is beautifully written, evocative and tender. It will haunt you long after you've finished it and leave you impatient for more" -- Richenda Miers * Country Life *
"Austere, humane and accomplished, Road Ends depicts a wilderness of the heart through which some roads pass" -- Richard Greene * Literary Review *
"Lawson grasps the anguished allure of family life played out against the vast, wintry backdrop of the Canadian landscape.
