‘A touching and thought-provoking page-turner about love, friendship, and the many ways in which our past defines our present. Intriguing, heartfelt and sensitively-told, I found it hard to put down and was sad to say goodbye to the characters when I’d finished.’ Holly Miller, author of The Sight of You

Eve and Adam are meant to be, they just don’t know it yet…

*

What if you could remember every last detail of your life?

Eve knows what her colleagues had for lunch last April. She remembers everyone who has stayed at the care home where she works, long after they’ve gone. Her life is small and meticulously managed.

And what if you couldn’t even remember your name?

‘Adam’ is found wandering down the central reservation of the M25. He has no memory of how he came to be there and no clue who he is.

As Eve works with Adam to help him discover who he once was, her world begins to open up – beyond the care home, beyond her memories.

But as Adam finally begins to remember his past, will there be room for Eve in his future?

So likeable, smart and wise. A bittersweet read about love, life and friendship that makes you stop and think long after you've finished reading the last page.

Inspiration in a bottle. Author Woods uses her novel- inspired by a social-media hashtag-to explore the exhilaration of new friendship, the power of loss, and the evergreen tendrils of hope

I read this recently and loved it SO much. I cried buckets, but it's ultimately a really positive, uplifting book about making every day count.

Publishers Weekly
Delightful page-turning awaits readers, even with Polly's inevitable finale. Polly is a wonderful character with a positively infectious attitude-memorable and magnetic, with a healthy dose of gallows humor. Joy shines through the tears, as this novel is a life lesson that should not be ignored.
Alice Peterson
A very heartwarming moving and often funny book that will surely make you see life & all it throws at us, in a different way... a beautiful read.
Lori Nelson Spielman, #1 international bestselling author of The Life List
Filled with beautiful life lessons of love, loss, friendship, and forgiveness...a perfect feel-good read. A warm, funny, thoughtful novel packed with heart and charged with emotion.
