Please enjoy the following excerpt from The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough, available December 5th from Jo Fletcher Books.
Tonight is a special, terrible night.
A woman sits at her father’s bedside watching the clock tick away the last hours of his life.
Her brothers and sisters—all broken, their bonds fragile—have been there for the past week, but now she is alone.
And that’s always when it comes.
The clock ticks, the darkness beckons.
If it comes at all.
