How one book can hold such aching heartbreak, beautiful tenderness, and vibrant emotion, I really don’t know. Sophie works from home and keeps her heart hidden, then in one life-changing night she meets Ben. Dani Atkins’s words have the ability to make me truly feel, and I impatiently waited for ‘This Love’ to arrive in the office. Once in my hands I didn't want to let it go, I sank into the story and read in just one sitting. This feels like real life, so authentic, but with an added glow of magic, not a breezy hocus-pocus, but an honest, heartfelt, revealing, soulful magic. Dani Atkins allows snippets of knowledge to fly free, small pieces of the puzzle start to drift together in front of your eyes. I will admit to sobbing my heart out, yet I also smiled, laughed, and was transported by the essence of the story. ‘This Love’ is a truly enchanting read, it captivates, and connects with vibrant intensity to the beauty of life. ~ Liz Robinson
This Love by Dani Atkins
Sophie Winter lives in a self-imposed cocoon - she's a single, thirty-one year old translator who works from home in her one bedroom flat. This isn't really the life she dreamed of, but then Sophie stopped believing in happy endings a very long time ago, when she was fifteen years old and tragedy struck her family. Her grief has left her scared of commitment and completely risk averse, so she plays it safe and keeps everyone at arm's length. Sophie understands she has a problem, but recognising it and knowing how to fix it are two entirely different things. One night a serious fire breaks out in the flat below hers. Sophie is trapped in the burning building until a random passer-by, Ben, luckily happens to spot and rescue her. Suddenly her cocoon is shattered - what will be the consequences of this second life-changing event?
