Description - You Can Live Forever by Julie Maxwell
Few disappointments compare to the loss of eternity Alice has been promised immortality and paradise as a member of the true religion of The Unbelievable Potential of Human Beings. Her mother is a pillar of the church and her brother is a deacon. But Alice is faltering; she s losing the knack of living forever. Her faith isn t helped by her father William, a part-time arsonist, rejected husband, ladies man and fraudster, or by Jude, an attractive fellow church-goer with a chequered past. In this intricate and satisfying debut, Julie Maxwell writes with dry, dark humour, wit and intelligence about sex and the sect and the heart of darkness
