The Night Always Comes

£8.99

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.
