A stunning, powerfully moving novel of faith and humanity, temptation and transgression from literary tour de force, A.N. Wilson.

'It's unlikely that a more intelligent, amusing and yet disturbing novel will appear this autumn.' - Scotsman

On The Island, just as on many other islands, marriages are unhappy, people fall in love and the seasons pass. The town of Aberdeen is no different, until the earthquakes. These seismic ripples tear down houses, forge bonds, and shake the foundations of humanity and religion. And in the midst of it all, Nellie and Ingrid fall in love.

In Aftershocks A. N. Wilson offers a portrait of nature, death and morality. Moved by the real losses of the Christchurch earthquake, this is an extraordinary novel about a community profoundly linked to the land it lives on.

'Witty, erudite and artful.' - Spectator
