Description

A compelling and emotional novel, for fans of Jojo Moyes and Jenny Colgan.

'With a style similar to David Nicholls, Gayle's writing is incisive, lyrical and very beautiful...It's impossible not to fall in love with the Hope family' Irish Independent

Tom Hope is broken. Ever since his wife Laura died he hasn't been the same man, and definitely not the same father. Luckily for Tom his mother-in-law Linda is around to pick up the pieces and look after his two struggling daughters, Evie and Lola.

But Tom getting arrested on the first anniversary of his wife's death is the last straw for Linda.

In a last bid attempt to make Tom reconnect with his daughters she takes drastic action and leaves for Australia. With two fast-maturing daughters Tom has to learn how to accept his responsibilities and navigate the newly discovered world of single fatherhood - starting immediately.

With only himself to rely on, will Tom fall back into grief or finally step up and be the father his girls need?

    Another great read to transport me away, at times I was 'in the room' as it's places I have been. Love Mikes work and look forward to more Oliver

    I am a huge fan of Mike Gayle having read the majority of his books. This book however I feel is a break from the norm and has everything, humour, forgiveness, emotion and a lot of sadness and self reflection. It makes you think of the value of life and relationships, a truly inspiring story of a journey of grief and finding your new place in life, whilst realising what is most important to you.
