The Book Club book

Enduring Love, written in 1997 is a powerful story about two strangers who meet after witnessing a deadly ballooning accident.  Joe Rose's calm life is shattered by his brief meeting with Jed Parry, a loner who threatens everything that Joe holds dear. 

Utterly compelling ― Sunday Times

Taut with narrative excitement and suspense ― Sunday Times

A plot so engrossing that it seems reckless to pick the book up in the evening if you plan to get any sleep that night ― 
Daily Mail
