Two people meet on the last day of university and forge a friendship which the reader follows on the same day of the year, every year, for the next twenty years.

Absolutely brilliant!

He is Dexter Mayhew, tall, dark and (she can't deny it) handsome. She is Emma Morley, bottled red hair, wilfully badly dressed, all principles and no action. Could this be the dawn of the rest of their lives? Or are Dex and Em living proof that - despite an unlikely beginning - men and women really can be just good friends?
