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 ourselves. Set in contemporary London and India, both past and present, Being Someone is a compelling narrative exploring the longings and frustrations of love. Harvey has crafted a very readable, intelligent, realistic, engaging novel that challenges the ambitions and perceptions of perfect love, and explores the complexities of relationships, and how people are shaped by their passions, desires and environment. This is a knowing, emotional journey into an adventure of contemporary love, a vivid portrait of kindred spirits who find each other only to discover they are destined to create memories together rather than a future.

"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.com
