Beartown

ebook

FROM THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ANXIOUS PEOPLE AND A MAN CALLED OVE, FREDRIK BACKMAN

JOJO MOYES
'I couldn't put it down. Heart-rending and engrossing' 5***** Reader Review
_________
In a large Swedish forest, Beartown hides a dark secret . . .
Cut-off from everywhere else, it experiences the kind of isolation that tears people apart.
And each year, more and more of the town is swallowed by the forest.
Then the town is offered a bright new future.
But it is all put in jeopardy by a single, brutal act.
It divides the town into those who think it should be hushed up and forgotten, and those who'll risk the future to see justice done.
Who will speak up?
Could you stand by and stay silent?
Or would you risk everything for justice?
Which side would you be on?
