Jennifer Donnelly’s debut novel, A Gathering Light, was hugely successful. Not only was it selected as a Richard and Judy Summer Read in 2003, it also won the Carnegie Medal that year. The judges described it as ‘totally emotionally captivating . . . outstanding in every way’. Revolution is Jennifer’s long-awaited second book for Bloomsbury. Once again she has woven a truly compelling tale. Revolution is a heartbreaking story of family and relationships set against a backdrop of modern-day New York and the French Revolution.
