"A beautifully observed, tender love story with characters you really care about...a bit like Normal People. I devoured it."―Jojo Moyes, New York Times bestselling author of Someone Else's Shoes
"I absolutely adored Talking at Night
... A gorgeous story of first love, loss, and the people who stick to your ribs, it should be on everyone's must-read list. Beautiful, poignant, and heart-wrenching in the best way possible." ―Carley Fortune, New York Times
bestselling author of Every Summer After
A poignant and emotional will they/won't they story that cleverly captures both the thrill and trepidation of first love
This is the story of Will and Rosie. The two are opposites in every way and yet they fall for each other as teenagers; nineties music, sideways glances, sunsets and bonfires and talking late into the night. It's palpable, inevitable: they're on the precipice of starting something wonderful. Until one day, tragedy strikes, and any possibility of being together seems to shatter.
But time and again, Rosie and Will find their way back to each other. Though the years pass, they cannot quite let go of what might have been. Talking at Night
tells a story of sudden connections, missed opportunities, the many loves we have over a lifetime--and the one that keeps us coming back, again and again, for more.Author:
