‘The debut novel breaking hearts around the world has completely broken mine. Anyone who wishes David Nicholls would write faster needs to grab this with both hands. A truly stunning achievement’ – Jill Mansell


We Own the Sky is a story about love, loss and finding hope – against all odds

Rob Coates can’t believe his luck. There is Anna, his incredible wife and most precious of all, Jack, their son, who makes every day an extraordinary adventure. Rob feels like he’s won the lottery of life. Or rather – he did. Until the day it all changes when Anna becomes convinced there is something wrong with Jack.

Now Rob sleepwalks through his days, unable to bridge the gulf that separates him from his wife, his son and the business of living. But he’s determined to come to terms with what’s happened – and find a way back to life, and forgiveness.

We Own the Sky will resonate with anyone who has ever suffered loss or experienced great love. Luke Allnutt shows that the journey from hope to despair and back is never as simple as we think, and that even the most thoroughly broken heart can learn to beat again.

‘We Own the Sky is a heartbreak of a novel, filled with love, sorrow, pain and ultimately, hope’ Jill santopolo author of The Light We Lost luke allnutt grew up in Surrey and has lived and worked in Prague as a journalist since 1998. In 2013, he wrote about his father’s death from a brain tumour in Unspoken, a Kindle Single for Amazon. A keen runner, he is married and has two young boys.
