We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker is an extraordinary novel about two kinds of families: the ones we are born into and the ones we create. With unforgettable characters and a mystery at its heart, We Begin at the End follows one man's return to his small hometown after 30 years in prison and the trouble that follows. B.A. Paris raves it's “Incredible with characters so brilliantly drawn they jump off the page.”
