Frances, a New Zealand woman, is laid to rest in an unmarked grave in Jamaica in 1894. Her enigmatic husband, the Rev. William Hammond, cannot be found. Reports are later sent to her brothers with allegations of cunning, fraud and, perhaps, murder. After all, Frances is not Hammonds first wife and his movements have always been elusive. Hammond has always been a traveller of both steamship and rail. But when Frances joins him the thrill of exotic places is soon overshadowed by a sense of foreboding. Does he really want her or is she in the way? The End of Longing is a thrilling, bitter-beautiful novel which skilfully explores notions identity, redemption and love.
