Description

Fans of Jojo Moyes and Marian Keyes will love THE SONGS OF US by Emma Cooper, a charming, funny and heartbreaking novel of love, loss and what it means to be a family.

If Melody hadn't run out of de-icer that day, she would never have slipped and banged her head. She wouldn't be left with a condition that makes her sing when she's nervous. And she definitely wouldn't have belted out the Arctic Monkeys' 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' in assembly at her son's school.

If Dev hadn't taken the kids to the zoo that day, then the accident wouldn't have happened. He wouldn't have left Flynn and Rose without a dad. Or shattered the love of his life's heart.

But if they hadn't seen the missing person report that day, they might never have taken the trip to Cornwall. And, in the last place they expected, discovered what it really means to be 'Us'.

Quirky, clever, and original, this will break your heart, but put it back together again. -- Katie Fforde Poignant and beautifully written * Woman * A warm and touching novel about love and loss, and the healing power of family * Woman & Home * A quirky, poignant book about love and family which I found myself racing through. -- Libby Page This is a very special book indeed: funny, powerful, heart-wrenching and so poignant. I have laughed and cried and cried . . . and it reminded me to hold my family close and tell each of them how much I love them [A] sweet, moving debut * Good Housekeeping * The Songs of Us is an emotional rollercoaster of a book that made me laugh and cry in equal measures. A tragically beautiful story of love and loss, family and hope. Emma Cooper has been swiftly added to my list of authors to read. Full of love, humour and heart, Emma's books will stay with you for a long time. Magical!
