About The Future Can’t Wait
“A mother’s story of longing and loss in today’s world, beautifully rendered and never more relevant.” — Andrew Smith, bestselling author of The Speech
The Future Can’t Wait is the emotive and compelling second novel from Angelena Boden, author of the gripping The Cruelty of Lambs.
Kendra Blackmore is trying to be a good mother and a good wife, as well as pursuing her pressurised teaching career. Then Kendra’s half-Iranian daughter Ariana (Rani) undergoes an identity crisis which results in her running away from home and cutting off all contact with her family.
Sick with worry and desperate to understand why her home-loving daughter would do this, Kendra becomes increasingly desperate for answers – and to find any way possible to discover the truth and bring her estranged daughter home…
The Future Can’t Wait is a page-turning story of a mother’s love, and the lengths we would all go to in order to know our children are safe.
