Description

Love at first sight - based on the true story of one girl and her 'train man'...

One very ordinary day, Maya Flowers sees a new commuter board her train to London, and suddenly the day isn't ordinary at all. Maya knows immediately and irrevocably that he is The One.

Every day they go through the same routine; he with his head in a book and her dreaming of their happily-ever-after. But eventually, Maya plucks up the courage to give Train Man a note asking him out for a drink.

And so begins a story of sliding doors, missed opportunities and finding happiness where you least expect it. Based on the true story that everyone is talking about, The Note is an uplifting, life-affirming reminder that taking a chance can change everything...

Perfect for fans of David Nicholls' One Day, Jojo Moyes and Sophie Kinsella. The Note is a once-in-a-lifetime love story for hopeless romantics everywhere.

'Maya and James are appealing characters and I love the idea that all you really need is the courage to pursue someone' Daily Mail. 'The laugh-out-loud, tears-in-your-coffee story of the consequences that unfolded from passing the note. 4*' OK! magazine. Brighten up your boring journey to work with this super-cute book about what happens when you dare to take a chance on happiness' Sun. 'Full of wit and charm, Zoe Folbigg's debut novel is a heart-warming tale of the importance of taking a risk in life and love.
