Publisher's Summary

This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.

Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet, but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.

Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences. 

Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide, and time is running out....

A beautiful and emotional love story that asks, how far would you go for a second chance at first love? Perfect for fans of The Man Who Didn’t Call and Miss You.

Gets better and better

I wasn’t sure at the beginning but by the end I was enthralled. Moving, heart wrenching and real. A great book.

A different take on love

The story was OK but it was hard to feel any empathy for the characters. Anna is the most self centred character and almost put me off completing the book. The male character narrator sounds in his 40s rather than a 20 something Adam. Not one to read a second time but a different take on a love story regardless.

A ‘must read’ book!

What a great story with the unusual concept of knowing both sides to the story, not just the main character’s! A lovely twist at the end, which I didn’t guess, after a rollercoaster of emotions throughout! Highly recommend!
