This is a very accomplished novel about our era, and how the information age hovers over people’s lives like a secular equivalent of the Last Judgement. An absolute must read.
~ Paul Butler, author of Mina's Child and The Good Doctor
In 1977, young woman flees her bad-news boyfriend, taking a bag of cash and hitching a ride to the world’s edge. She intends to disappear forever, to redefine herself on her own terms as Dawn Taylor.
But years later, stars and satellites align as the past catches up with Dawn.
In a roadside motel on Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula, four diverse paths converge. Cheryl is desperate to resuscitate a reputation blown apart on social media. Ethan just wants to escape a tired narrative of childhood trauma. And Spencer, an ex-con, is chasing a faint hope he’s glimpsed on a website.
When a ferocious storm traps them together, there’s nothing to keep them from disclosing who they really are — and what they’re really after.
Eloquent and propulsive, We All Will Be Received asks whether anyone can find redemption when the tightening web of an interconnected world has made the past inescapable.
