Description

From the author of Miss You comes Kate Eberlen's impossibly romantic second novel, Only You.

One person is all it takes to change a lifetime . . . But how will you know if they're the one?

Present
Letty and Alf are the only English speakers at an Italian class in Rome, where they discover the language that really connects them is dance: Letty's first love was ballet, while Alf was a junior ballroom champion. They come from different worlds, until the moment they waltz around the Piazza Navona, and everything changes.

Past
But one moment can't change the past, and it's clear that Alf and Letty still have their secrets. What caused them to leave their lives behind in England? And who, or what, are they running from? As their relationship deepens, it becomes harder and harder to tell the truth . . .

Future
When the unthinkable happens, Letty returns to London and Alf to Blackpool. Will they spend their lives apart, or discover a future together?

Review Text

Only You is the book we all need right now. Charming, tender, funny -- and sweet without being sickly, like the very best gelato -- it's utterly glorious escapism. You will gulp it down more quickly than an Aperol Spritz on a hot summer's night. Perfetto!

Review quote

Impossibly romantic * Sunday Post * A truly wonderful book. I loved it -- Alexandra Potter, author of Confessions of a Forty-Something F*ck Up While we're all stuck at home, we need to be able to live and love vicariously so Only You, with its romantic Rome setting is just the thing for some literary escapism -- Sarra Manning, Red magazine Beautifully realised and utterly beguiling -- Janet Ellis, author of How It Was I loved it! I keep thinking about the characters and their lives. It's wonderful to feel Kate's passion for my beloved art form ballet. I felt touched in many ways reading this novel -- Marianela Nunez, Prima Ballerina of The Royal Ballet A beautiful love story * Bella Magazine * I read it in a single day, savouring every moment but also breathless with wanting to know how it would end. And the clever twists! I didn't see a single one coming. And the ending itself - I could have danced. I certainly cried. Just wonderful -- Joanna Nadin, author of The Queen of Bloody Everything A love story with a difference and its ballroom dancing lead characters will charm fans of Strictly Come Dancing * Daily Express * If ever there was a time we needed to be swept off our feet and transported elsewhere, this is it. Cue Kate Eberlen's wonderfully romantic second novel, set in Rome . . . Perfectly plotted * Woman's Weekly * The author of the brilliant Miss You is back with [another] read you're sure to love . . . Exquisite * The Sun * A gorgeous, uplifting romantic story with all the sparkle of a glass of Prosecco -- Fanny Blake If romantic fiction is your cup of tea, you'll love this touching story of a pair of 20-somethings who meet at a language school in Rome . . . Kate Eberlen's previous book, Miss You, was a bestseller and Only You is just as good, with wonderful descriptions of Rome's iconic landmarks * Independent * Kate Eberlen's first book, Miss You, was a huge hit and Only You is just as compelling. Wildly romantic, touching and wise, it will keep you reading until dawn * Sunday Express/S Magazine * Only You is the book we all need right now. Charming, tender, funny -- and sweet without being sickly, like the very best gelato -- it's utterly glorious escapism. You will gulp it down more quickly than an Aperol Spritz on a hot summer's night. Perfetto! -- Veronica Henry
