`A heartbreaking tale' THE SUN




`Exceptionally beautiful' MIRANDA DICKINSON



They'll always have each other...won't they?
Lisa and Elliot have been best friends ever since the day they met as children. Popular, bright and sporty, Lisa was Elliot's biggest supporter when the school bullies made his life a misery, and for that, he will always be grateful.


Twenty years later, life has pulled the pair apart and Lisa is struggling. Her marriage is floundering, her teenage kids are being secretive, and she's so tired she can't think straight. So when Elliot knocks on the door, looking much better than she remembers, she can't help but be delighted to see her old friend again.


With Elliot back in their lives, Lisa's family problems begin to improve - he's like the fairy godmother she never had. As their bond deepens, she realises how much she's missed him, and prays that this is one friendship that will last a lifetime. But sometimes, life has other ideas...



A heartwarming story perfect for fans of Keith Stewart and Jojo Moyes, that will leave you with a tear in your eye but hope in your heart.
