June

(2015)
A novel by

 
By the award-winning author of The Twin

On a hot summer's day in June 1969 everyone in the village gathered to welcome Queen Juliana. It would have been an unforgettable day of celebration if only the baker hadn't been running late with his deliveries and knocked down little Hanne with his brand-new VW van.

Years later, Jan arrives on a hot day in June in order to tidy his sister's grave, and is overcome again with grief and silent fury. Isn't it finally time to get to the bottom of things?

June traces in spellbinding, tender detail how the ripples from one tragic incident spread through a community, a family and down the generations.
