LoveReading View on When I Met You

The title actually refers to a daughter meeting her father and not the man of her life as one might imagine.  Her mother has always told Marianne that he went to Australia but he was actually in prison for arson and manslaughter.  Now he is out and dying of cancer.  He wants to know his daughters, Marianne and her sister Hayley.  Marianne is a gifted violinist who has never pursued her love.  He persuades her to apply to the Royal College of Music.  This is a charming tale of making amends and finding love.  Told from Marianne’s perspective, it’s sensitive, lightly handled and beautifully written.


A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'Funny and poignant, this is a brilliant story about love in all its forms – not least within a family. Marianne is struggling to get out of a rut and cope with the return of her father after over twenty years, especially when he has some unexpected and shocking news. I don’t want to give the plot away, but I will say to have the tissues ready… There are a couple of scenes where they will most definitely be needed! A truly lovely book that will warm your heart.' - Sally Williamson, Commissioning Editor, MIRA Books

When I Met You Synopsis

Marianne has just had the worst year of her life. She's lost her business, her boyfriend and instead gained a mountain of debt. To top it all she's had to move back home with her busy-body mother and garden furniture loving step-father. Her future crumbling at her feet, Marianne is lost. She has no idea where she fits, what her future will be - and then her father turns up on her doorstep, after twenty years absence, with the news that he's dying. With only months to get to know the person who may hold the key to who she really is and who she can be - Marianne has no time to lose. The last thing Marianne needs right now is romance, so when she comes face to face with her father's male nurse the gorgeous Matthew, a man she cannot have and shouldn't want, she's torn. Is she ready to move on, and can happiness really come out of her life's biggest tragedies?

About Jemma Forte

Jemma Forte grew up wanting to write for Cosmopolitan magazine, be a famous actress or work in a shoe shop (she loved the foot-measuring device in Clarks). Her parents didn’t want her to go to stage school because, according to them, she was ‘precocious enough already’. However, they actively encouraged her obsession with reading and writing and she wrote her first book, ‘Mizzy the Germ’, when she was eight. She sent it to a publisher (unwittingly backing up the whole precocious theory) and was dismayed when for some reason they didn’t want ...
