Synopsis

The Message by Julie Highmore

Jen has no idea that her neat life is about to unravel. With one misplaced voicemail from her husband, she discovers that her marriage is a sham. Numb with shock, she's hiding from the future when she's stunned by a face from the past. Kit was Jen's first love, the one she hoped would never leave. On their airbase in Germany, he was out of her league -- a senior officer's son -- but even Kit's glamorous and disapproving mother couldn't keep them apart. What began as a glorious summer, though, could not last for ever. Now, years later, Jen and Kit meet again, both troubled, and forced to confront what happened. Together, can they make sense of it all?

Reviews

Compulsive reading Daily Express 'Her breakthrough book... With dual voices and fluctuating time, it tells a sensitive tale of picking up life again and of possible second chances, all in a lovely style
Bookseller

'Where Highmore excels is in the unsentimental way she writes about the dilemmas life throws at us. There's also a mordant, black humour to her writing, which keeps the froth at bay'
Glamour

'Enjoyable romantic fiction, done with skill and subtlety'
You magazine

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.

Pam Woodburn

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
