"I'd always known. From the first time she had looked into my eyes with possibility rather than containment, with a smile, with vulnerability, I'd known that there would be hurt." Our lives are a tale to be told, but how often do we fear the story in its telling? James has fallen through life, plotting a course of least resistance, taking each day as it comes and waiting for that indefinable 'something' to turn up, to give his story meaning. His journey lacks one vital element - a fellow traveller, a heart's desire - a purpose. Then he meets Lainey. Confident. Beautiful. Captivating. And James rewrites himself to win her heart. Lainey gives James a reason to grow, paints a bright future, promises the happy ending he has sought so keenly. But when we discover we can live the greatest story of all, are we able to share the pages with someone else? Being Someone is an emotive tale of love, of self-discovery and adventure - a story of the eternal search for happiness in another, without ultimately losing more

Review quote

"This is a modern, existential novel redolent of Camus. The work weaves the characters' differing perspectives cleverly around the central theme of the imperfections and frailty of human relationships. The characters are believable and flawed as are we all." - Amazon "this is a book of discovery of love and mistakes, and how different decisions in life can change the lives of others forever. I fell in love with not only the characters but also how brilliantly the novel was sewn together in which to create an all-consuming novel that sweeps the reader uncontrollably off their feet. Definitely worth a read!" - mylittlebookblog.comshow more
