The Last Act of Adam Campbell

The Last Act of Adam Campbell

NetGalley reviewers are loving this feel-good, uplifting novel:

‘WOW if this book doesn’t make you cry then I’m pretty sure nothing will’

‘I loved every single page . . . I haven’t been able to stop thinking about since I finished it’

‘You will need a lot of tissues, as it is funny, sad and touching and really shows the strength of human spirit’


A year can go quickly. Particularly when it’s your last.

Adam had a good life: a job he enjoyed, a nice house, a loving partner and a bright six-year-old daughter. Then he cheated on his partner. Then she kicked him out of their home. And then he was given approximately twelve months to live.

Despite the devastating news, Adam is determined to turn his life around before it finally runs out. Help comes in the form of an ex-junky, a cantankerous train driver, a nun experiencing a crisis of faith, and a teenager intent on losing her virginity – all living on borrowed time, all desperate to feel alive before their time is up.
