Publisher's Summary

The new novel from the number one best-selling author about chance and falling in love.

Meet George and Alice....

Three facts about George

His daughter, Suzi, is the best thing in his life.

His job teaching in the local primary school comes a close second.

He's never tried online dating but there's a first time for everything. 

Three facts about Alice

Her boyfriend of six months has a wife she knew nothing about.

She never thought that at the age of 32 she would be returning to her childhood home town—jobless and homeless.

While her heart might have been trampled on, somewhere deep inside she's still holding out for love.

One fact about love

It's everywhere—or nowhere—depending on where you look.

This is the story of George and Alice, two lonely hearts unknowingly orbiting each other's lives. But will their paths converge - and what will happen if they do?

A beautiful, warm read.

Just such a lovely read of life and it’s twists and turns. It really was ‘curling up with a good book’ for me.

Top class

This book was great, gentle entertaining, sometimes happy sometimes sad, George’s mother was a wise woman and he realised it to late. Susie was lovely.
My one little niggle would be the end was a bit rushed.
If your not into violence and bad language this is the book for you.
