Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Their love story started with goodbye…
The brand-new novel from The Sunday Times bestselling author, Miranda Dickinson.
‘We’ll meet again at St Pancras station, a year from today. If we’re meant to be together, we’ll both be there. If we’re not, it was never meant to be . . .’
Phoebe and Sam meet by chance at St Pancras station. Heading in opposite directions, both seeking their own adventures, meeting the love of their lives wasn’t part of the plan. So they make a promise: to meet again in the same place in twelve months’ time if they still want to be together.
But is life ever as simple as that?
This is a story of what-ifs and maybes – and how one decision can change your life forever…
This is a story of following your dreams, trusting fate and finding love.
Phoebe is determined to prove her friends wrong. She’s given up her job and is being brave – setting off on her travels alone. She’s not really certain she’s doing the right thing and then there are major hold ups and delays to the train she’s due to catch. Delays which are made more bearable by a chance encounter with Sam. He’s supposed to be travelling to Scotland but his train is also delayed. As they talk, they connect. However both are travelling for their own reasons. Both have dreams to fulfil and things they hope to achieve. Their instant love is mutual but they still have to part. They agree to keep in touch, but not often, and to meet again in a year. A lot can happen in a year. Will they meet again? Will their love stand the distance and time apart?
It is a story of fate, possibilities, decisions and romance. A heartwarming contemporary romance with a difference. Will the year apart convince them to meet again or will it help them forget each other and their attraction? The story is really written in three parts – their initial meeting is the first part, next is what they did in their year apart, which is told from their alternating points of view, and what happens after the year. I really enjoyed the first and third parts more than the middle which seemed in comparison to be a more laborious section. It is a story filled with travel, investigations, friends and love that I really enjoyed escaping into and have no hesitation in recommending.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
