Summary

A love story that will break your heart but put it back together again from the author of The Songs of Us

Lost:
Six-foot-two Irish man who answers to the name Samuel McLaughlin.
Has weak shins and enjoys show tunes.
If found, please return to Sophie Williams.

Before Sophie met Samuel she saw the world in grey. 
Before Samuel met Sophie, he never believed in love at first sight.

When they first meet, something tells them they are meant to be.  
But fate has other ideas. 

Now they have lost each other and can't see a way back. 
But they've already changed each other's lives in more ways than they ever expected....

Not disappointed

Ok the story is full of missed opportunities that just become a tad annoying but it was an overall good listen. Loved the performances especially Samuel’s Mum which made me lol on the tube 😊I wasn’t disappointed in my choice.

Superb!

Absolutely adored this book, everything about it. Every character was just so likeable and by the end I was in love with Samuel’s family and had laughed and cried with them.

AMAZING

This story is fantastic. It's full of humour and love and twists. But I just want to say WOW to both narrators. The way Aidan Kelly portrayed Mr and Mrs C was so funny, and Helen Keeley showed so much skill in how the accent of the main character dipped in and out. Best audio book I've listened to so far!

Speechless........

Sometimes an author's story is so well written, full of compassion, empathy, tender, sad, heart breaking moments.... and you just feel it, you resonate with it, you appreciate it. Then when you add narrators that bring it to life so much better than you could have by reading, you get to the end.... well.... it left me Speechless..... Love it when I find "something special" to read.
