The Children Act

The Children Act

By  Ian McEwan

Re-jacketed in stunning new series style, The Children Act is a brilliant, emotionally wrenching novel from the Booker prize-winning, Sunday Times-bestselling Ian McEwan

A brilliant, emotionally wrenching new novel from the author of Atonement and Amsterdam.

Fiona Maye, a leading High Court judge, renowned for her fierce intelligence and sensitivity is called on to try an urgent case. For religious reasons, a seventeen-year-old boy is refusing the medical treatment that could save his life. Time is running out.

She visits the boy in hospital – an encounter which stirs long-buried feelings in her and powerful new emotions in the boy. But it is Fiona who must ultimately decide whether he lives or dies and her judgement will have momentous consequences for them both.
