About the book

A startlingly beautiful story of a family's survival, and an unforgettable dystopian vision of a familiar world in flames

'Instantly immersive, beautifully imagined, this is an unflinching but inspiring story about some things we're going to lose, and other things we must never lose' Lee Child

______________________________________

The world is on fire. And what will you do?

In a city rocked by global catastrophe, home-grown terrorism, shortages and wildfires, Cass is quietly raising three small children by herself. Her husband, Nathaniel, has left to serve as a medic in a war overseas.

As life in the city becomes increasingly impossible, Cass knows she can no longer wait for Nathaniel's return. Packing up their lives, she and the children set off in search of a place of greater safety.

But Cass will learn that not all promises and not all sanctuaries are what they seem - and as the fires around them begin to close in, she'll discover just how far she'll go for her children in a world teetering on apocalypse.

Sensual, claustrophobic and vivid, Briefly Very Beautiful announces the arrival of a major new talent, painting an unforgettable portrait of a mother trying to hold her family together.

______________________________________________

'A story that burns from the page. Dineen writes about motherhood and the climate crisis with piercing clarity' Amy Twigg, author of Spoilt Creatures

'A haunting vision of our slow-motion apocalypse. This is exactly what it will be like' Michael LaPointe, author of The Creep

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
