March 2014 MEGA Book of the Month.
JoJo Moyes is an incredible writer whose ability to depict modern life in all its glorious complexities is second to none. This is a touching story of the lengths we’ll go to for the people we love or just to try to escape from a life we don’t want to be living anymore. You’ll fall in love with Jess and Ed as much as you want them to fall for each other and be wishing that the story turns out the way it should, not going terribly wrong the way life so often does.
Jess Thomas wants...to be more than a single mum getting by day after day...to do her best for her gifted but sensitive daughter Tanzie...to find a way back from the loneliest place on earth Ed Nicholls is hoping...he won't go to jail...there's a way back from the biggest mistake of his life...something or someone will make it all go away Jess and Ed are...two strangers looking for a little kindness...two lost souls with a lot to learn from each other...about to find out that one plus one makes more - so much more - than two. The One Plus One is Jojo Moyes' brilliant new heartbreaking novel about two people learning to take a chance on each other.
