rin's mother has motor neurone disease and has decided to take her fate into her own hands. As Erin looks back at her twenty-six-year-old self, she can finally tell the story of the unimaginable task she faced one winter. 'Chloe Lane's The Swimmers is by turns touching, resonate, fiercely candid, and beautifully written. In this novel about a daughter's attempt to help her mother receive a merciful death, Lane has sidestepped the cliches, and captured the enigma of what it means to save a life by ending one.' -Jill Ciment, author of The Body in Question
