The Blasphemer, by Nigel Farndale

When zoologist Daniel Kennedy and Nancy, the woman he loves, are in a plane accident en route to the Galápagos Islands, Daniel chooses to save himself, pushing her out of the way. Although he returns to rescue her, the act continues to haunt both him and their relationship. The Blasphemer weaves in multiple tales from over the decades around this central plot, including the story of Daniel’s great-grandfather in WWI. A fierce, elegant novel that was widely praised upon its release.
