Every life is made up of thousands of moments. Moments that make us who we are. But what if those moments don’t happen the way we think they should…?

What if you got on the wrong bus, or didn’t speak to the right person at a party, or stayed in the wrong guest house on holiday? Would you miss your chance at happiness? Or would happiness find you eventually, when the moment was right?

Meet Matthew and Myrtle. They were born a month apart and are meant to be together, but they do not know each other yet. We will travel with them on the moments of their lives – from their births to their deaths. We will see their triumphs and their tragedies, their paths taken or not, opportunities missed or leapt upon, hearts broken and mended.

Because true love is worth waiting for, but what if it takes a lifetime to appear…?

Astutely observed and so very tenderly told, The Moments is pure pleasure from beginning to end
The Express
'A joyful read for anyone who's happily in love, has loved, or is yet to find love. It will make you laugh -although keep the tissues nearby
The poignant power of "what if" draws you into this heartfelt story...a clever hook, skilfully delivered
Sunday Mirror
A mesmerising read
Woman's Weekly
A powerful story of missed chances
Tender and poetic
So very highly recommended, do not miss this book especially if you love books by David Nicholls and Jojo Moyes. The Moments actually affected me more than One Day and Me Before You and I really can't praise Natalie Winter highly enough
The Book Magnet
Reading The Moments made me glad to be me, to be alive, and to have led the life I have - good and bad bits included. In The Moments Natalie Winter shows us fundamental truths about humanity and life so that I feel my life has been enhanced by her words. It's just too difficult to express how much I enjoyed reading The Moments because it's such an uplifting, heart-warming story
Linda's Book Bag
A stunning and powerful debut about love, near misses and the moments that really make us, The Moments is a tender and emotional story that really pulls the reader in and appreciate the small things in life
Handwritten Girl
The Moments blew me away and even made the deepest part of my soul emotional! Such an incredibly beautiful, raw, insightful, and highly emotive read which will stay with me for a very long time. Please, please do put this on your wishlist as you will not regret it
