It Was Always You

It Was Always You

Would you choose a different life if you had the chance?

Two people. One chance to turn back the clock.

The unforgettable new novel from the author of The Songs of Us. If you love Cecilia Ahern and Holly Miller, you’ll adore this heartwarming novel.

On the last night in October 1999 the clocks went back, and Ella and Will’s love began.

A teenage Ella sat around a bonfire drinking with her future husband and her oldest friend Cole.

As midnight approached, Ella wandered away from the group and found herself
leaning against a derelict archway before passing out.

The next day, Ella remembered fractured images of a conversation with a woman
in a green coat and red scarf but dismissed it as a drunken dream.

Twenty-three years later, with her marriage to Will in trouble, and Cole spiralling out of
control, Ella opens a gift which turns her life upside down: a green coat and red scarf.

When she looks in the mirror, the woman from the archway is reflected back at her.

As the last Sunday in October arrives, Ella is faced with a choice.
Would she choose a different life, if she could do it again?

Until, one day, Ellie moves out.

Six-foot-two Irish man who answers to the name Samuel McLaughlin.

Sometimes all you need is a little push . . .

Georgia loves wine, reality TV and sitting on the sofa after work. She does not love heights, looking at her bank account, going on dates, or activities that involve a sports bra. And she will never, ever take a risk.

With the birthday just months away, Georgia suddenly has a deadline to learn to grab life with both hands. Could she be brave enough to take the leap, for her sister?

And how might her own life change if she did?

Olivia Beirne’s bestselling The List That Changed My Life will take you on the hilarious and heart-warming journey of a lifetime, showing you what it means to really be alive… Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Rosie Walsh and Marian Keyes.

The Songs of Us

The Songs of Us

‘Quirky, clever, and original, this will break your heart, but put it back together again’
Katie Fforde

‘A quirky, poignant book about love and family which I found myself racing through’ Libby Page

‘One of my favourites of 2018’ Amazon reviewer


Fans of Jojo Moyes, Cecilia Ahern and Marian Keyes will love this debut novel by Emma Cooper. Shortlisted for the RNA Contemporary Novel Award The Songs of Us is a laugh-out-loud, funny and heartbreaking novel of love, loss and what it means to be a family.

If Melody hadn’t run out of de-icer that day, she would never have slipped and banged her head. She wouldn’t be left with a condition that makes her sing when she’s nervous. And she definitely wouldn’t have belted out the Arctic Monkeys’ ‘I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor’ in assembly at her son’s school.

If Dev hadn’t taken the kids to the zoo that day, then the accident wouldn’t have happened. He wouldn’t have left Flynn and Rose without a dad. Or shattered the love of his life’s heart.

But if they hadn’t seen the missing person report that day, they might never have taken the trip to Cornwall. And, in the last place they expected, discovered what it really means to be ‘Us’.

Readers love The Songs of Us:

‘Rarely does a book come along that is as unique and mesmerising as The Songs Of Us

‘Reminiscent of (and in my humble opinion right up there with) Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and Cecilia Ahern’s PS I Love You

‘It had me laughing and crying in equal measures’

The Songs of Us will soften your heart and make you smile’

‘Get your hands on a copy now. TRUST ME.’

‘This book is something really special, I might even venture to say, perfect’

‘I laughed, cried, felt sad and felt heart-warmed in equal measures’

‘I could not put it down … I really do highly recommend this book’
