Description - Speak Now by Kaylie Jones

Paperback reissue of the critically acclaimed literary thriller from the best-selling author Kaylie Jones. Clara Sverdlow has been stalked by Niko Kamenski, her high-school lover, for almost 20 years. A recently sober alcoholic in her mid-thirties, she has found happiness in a tenuous new marriage to Mark. Yet the past lurks over them like a great shadow, always encroaching on their happiness. Clara's father, Viktor, was a Russian political prisoner in Auschwitz. He was involved in the camp underground, "organising" much-needed goods to help the prisoners. But he also worked on the train ramps and helped to guide thousands of innocent victims to the gas chambers. Mark has his own demons - a brother dead from a drug overdose and connections to his hometown heavies, which he can't seem to break free of. Yet together they have found a fragile grace. With a miracle baby, they are trying to forget the past and learn to live normally. But Clara's stalker secretly insinuates himself in their life with disastrous consequences. Clara and Mark's only hope is to address the past and confront the present before it's too late.
