One of our Books of the Year 2014.
JoJo Moyes is an incredible writer whose ability to depict modern life in all its glorious complexities is second to none. This is a touching story of the lengths we’ll go to for the people we love or just to try to escape from a life we don’t want to be living anymore. You’ll fall in love with Jess and Ed as much as you want them to fall for each other and be wishing that the story turns out the way it should, not going terribly wrong the way life so often does.
