A provocative novel about the fallout from a search for truth by the author of the national bestseller The Lifeboat.
For Maggie Rayburn—wife, mother, and secretary at a munitions plant—life is pleasant, predictable, and secure. When she finds proof of a high-level cover-up on her boss’ desk, she impulsively takes it, turning her world upside down. Propelled by a desire to do good—and a newfound taste for excitement—Maggie starts to see injustice everywhere. Soon, her bottom drawer is filled with evidence, her town has turned against her, and she must decide how far she will go for the truth.
Meanwhile, in Iraq, Captain Penn Sinclair’s hasty orders have disastrous results. In an attempt at atonement, he reunites with three survivors to expose the truth about the war. Now and Again examines the interconnectedness of lives, the limits of knowledge, and the consequences of doing the right thing.

“In this stunning novel from Rogan, seemingly unrelated story threads are ingeniously woven into an explosive whole…Rogan skillfully portrays characters who examine their consciences, working toward a more responsible way of living in the world. Power struggles ensue, families suffer, friendships are tested, and wells of strength are tapped, yet the author offers no pat answers to life’s difficult questions.”
