As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside.

Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special-and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Gois another classic by the author of The Remains of the Day.
A uniquely moving novel, charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of our lives. Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were at school together deep in the English countryside, hidden away from the outside world. Kathy, now an adult, begins to remember their time at the school and unfolds a haunting story of truth that had been forgotten in the whirl of seemingly happy childhoods.
