The Way We Were by Elizabeth Noble
  

Lovereading view...

What if you had a second chance at first love? Susannah and Rob were childhood sweethearts. But as with most early love affairs, they broke up, moved on and now find themselves in very different places. And not entirely happy - who is? A chance meeting between them sends shockwaves through their lives. What happens when your first love makes a surprise reappearance? Is fate telling you it's time for a second chance ...or should you simply walk away and let the past become ancient history? But Susannah and Rob just aren't able to forget the way they were ...and the world is about to discover the consequences of their reunion.

If you like Elizabeth Noble you might also like to read books by Robyn Sisman, Jojo Moyes and Clare Chambers.
