The Waiting Game

by Jessica Thompson

The Waiting Game Synopsis

Nessa Bruce waited for her husband to come through the double doors. She'd waited for him to return home from Afghanistan for what felt like forever, and now the moment was finally here. But Jake wasn't... Jake Bruce didn't come home, and it looked like he never would. Nessa's life - and that of her daughter Poppy - is turned upside down in an instant. What had happened to the elusive man at the centre of their world? They hold onto the hope that he was still out there somewhere, alive... but as time passes by, Nessa is forced to look at her life, at the decisions she has made and the secrets she has kept. For maybe somewhere within it all lies the answer to the question she's desperate to answer - where is the man she loves?
