This book will rip readers’ hearts to shreds. Much like Broadchurch, Every Moment Since zeros in on a small Southern community where eleven-year-old Davy Malcor went missing in 1985. At once a family drama and a literary mystery, the novel opens when Davy’s distinct jacket is found twenty-one years later, and everyone is left grappling with their roles in what really happened that night. Deftly handling both grief and hope, nostalgia and tragedy, Whalen’s latest is an emotionally raw and gripping story that reminds readers that sometimes all one can do is take the next breath.
