‘A poignant story… beautifully written’ Holly Miller

‘Gorgeous, tender, spine-tingling storytelling’ Miranda Dickinson


An uplifting story about love and the power of family from the author of The First Time I Saw You. Fans of Jojo Moyes and Cecilia Ahern will adore this heartfelt and hopeful story.


One minute Jen and her sister Kerry were crossing the road to go to the shops and the next minute life was changed forever. Jen lost her sister in the accident that day, as well as a part of herself.

Jen is married to her wonderful (if slightly awkward), Ed, is mother of two perfect children and living in a house like something out of a Next catalogue. She has everything she has ever wanted. But who is she without her sister?

As her memories of Kerry become her reality, the further away she gets from her family.
Can she learn to say goodbye to her sister before it’s too late?
