All The Broken Places Summary

All The Broken Places: The Sequel to The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

'Beautifully told and gripping from first page to last' Sunday Express

'Gripping and well-honed...consummately constructed, humming with tension' Guardian
'You can't prepare yourself for the magnitude and emotional impact of this powerful novel' John Irving
________________________________

From the author of the globally bestselling, multi-million-copy classic, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, comes its astonishing and powerful sequel.

Gretel Fernsby is a quiet woman leading a quiet life. She doesn't talk about her escape from Germany seventy years ago or the dark post-war years in France with her mother. Most of all, she doesn't talk about her father, the commandant of one of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps.

But when a young family moves into the apartment below her, Gretel can't help but befriend their little boy, Henry, though his presence brings back painful memories. One night, she witnesses a violent argument between his parents, which threatens to disturb her hard-won peace.

For the second time in her life, Gretel is given the chance to save a young boy. To do so would allay her guilt, grief and remorse, but it will also force her to reveal her true identity.

Will she make a different choice this time, whatever the cost to herself?

The new novel from John Boyne, WATER, is available for pre-order now.

All The Broken Places Reviews

Gripping and well-honed...consummately constructed, humming with tension... a defence of literature's need to shine a light on the darkest aspects of human nature and it does so with a novelist's skill, precision and power * The Guardian *
'What an incredible feat of storytelling. All the Broken Places is a stark confrontation of evil, an examination of guilt and deflection, and an old-fashioned page-turner. John treads the finest of narrative lines with skill and grace and proves himself yet again to be among the world's greatest storytellers. ' * Donal Ryan *
An eloquent meditation on guilt, complicity and redemption.. a remarkable novel, with humanity at its core * Mail on Sunday *
Beautifully told and gripping from first page to last * Sunday Express *
This novel, this exceptional, layered and compelling story, is built on modern history and all of us people who live it. The protagonist, the elderly, forthright and mysterious Mrs. Fernsby, is more than memorable and every one of Boyne's characters, and every scene, dark or light, is limned in truth and insight. This book moves like a freight train,with force and consequence for the reader. * Amy Bloom *
