'Forget everything you know about apocalypses: this novel, set in Cornwall, will restore your faith in humanity' Elle UK
'A gentle and uplifting tale of warding off apocalypse in a remote corner of Cornwall' Financial Times
'As the front pages crowd with headlines that grow ever more grim, Not Forgetting the Whale offers a very welcome alternative' Independent

When a young City trader, Joe, washes up on the sands of St Piran in Cornwall, warning of a deadly pandemic virus and a financial apocalypse, he is rescued by the villagers, and given a home.

From the retired village doctor and the beachcomber, to the priest's wife and the flamboyant romantic novelist, they take this lost soul into their midst. The village, Joe tells them, must store up food, and isolate themselves to stay safe.

But are Joe's fears unfounded? Why has Joe fled the city for St Piran? And what of the whale that lurks in the bay?

Intimate, funny and heart-warming, Not Forgetting the Whale is a story about a community reacting to a deadly threat, about the best and worst in our nature - and the search for a place to call home.
