Three hours is 180 minutes or 10,800 seconds.
It is a morning’s lessons, a dress rehearsal of Macbeth, a snowy trek through the woods.
It is an eternity waiting for news. Or a countdown to something terrible.
It is 180 minutes to discover who you will die for and what men will kill for.
In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. From the wounded headmaster in the library, unable to help his trapped pupils and staff, to teenage Hannah in love for the first time, to the parents gathering desperate for news, to the 16 year old Syrian refugee trying to rescue his little brother, to the police psychologist who must identify the gunmen, to the students taking refuge in the school theatre, all experience the most intense hours of their lives, where evil and terror are met by courage, love and redemption.
ROSAMUND LUPTON‘s new novel “Three Hours’ is published 9th January 2020.

WHAT DID I THINK?
Another bestseller by the very talented Rosamund, again the books get better and better with this one keeping you guessing right up to the end about what happens. I really enjoyed this as to me it was a bit different, also with good unusual characters that worked really well with the story. It also read like it was all in the same time frame so you could imagine what they were going through. Some parts are surprising so it keeps the intense pressure up about what is going to happen. Very well written and I loved it.
