‘Oh my goodness!… I have tears streaming down my cheeks… I have been completely pulled in and unable to put this book down… I'm hugely shocked that this book has brought out such emotion in me… Definitely deserving of five stars.’ Little Miss Book Lover 87, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wendy’s life can be neatly divided into two: before and after. Before her husband’s car accident, it was just the two of them. They never took the train at rush hour, and they avoided their noisy neighbour upstairs. Naveem devoted his spare time to vintage train models, and Wendy to re-reading the well-thumbed pages of her favourite books. It didn’t matter what others thought about their small, quiet life together – they were happy. After the coma, Wendy barely recognises herself. When she’s not holding the love of her life’s hand, accompanied by the beep of the life-support machine, who is she? The nurse tells her to talk to Naveem – that he can still hear her – but she doesn’t have a single thing to say. Suddenly Wendy can’t bear the silence. She needs something, anything, to talk to Naveem about. Suddenly she’s losing herself at fairgrounds packed with crowds and candyfloss, she’s at the airport, waiting for the whoosh of the planes as they take off, making friends with the neighbour she has spent over a decade avoiding. Knowing that every breath her husband takes might be his last, Wendy has no choice but to try to carry on without him. Should she feel guilty about living while his life is on pause? And when – if – he wakes up, will he still love the woman she has become? This poignant, moving and uplifting tale is for anyone who has taken life for granted, neglected to say ‘I love you’ to their loved ones, or forgotten to find happiness in the little things. Perfect for fans of Josie Silver, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and Jojo Moyes. Readers absolutely love With or Without You: ‘I am a little bit in love with this man and his incredible ability to make me cry my eyes out and then laugh so much I choke on my tea, in the space of a few pages!... A poignant, heartbreaking and heart-warming page turner.’ The Ladies Who Read ‘It’s heartwarming, emotional and a book I have thought about long after I finished it. I really enjoyed this and really recommend it!’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘This beautiful novel has stolen my heart. It’s original, poignant, funny and written with an exquisite sensitivity that cuts to the quick… Pure, belly-laugh farce – and yes, I did laugh out loud – but it is also deeply moving. I don’t know how he does it, but Davies gets the balance just right… ! And I loved the beautifully delivered messages about life, love, family and friends: the only things that really matter… I’m just going to come right out and say it: Mike Gayle, watch out! There’s a new kid on the block.’ Hook Me a Book, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Incredible… In love… A poignant, heartbreaking and heartwarming page-turner… Makes me cry my eyes out and laugh so much I choke on my tea, in the space of a few pages!’ The Ladies Who Read ‘I loved this book so much… Thoughtful, funny… Sad, original and charming… This book comes highly recommended!’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘Wonderful… Drew me in, I laughed, I cried, a totally moving read.’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I got through this book super quick… I really loved the unexpected twists and turns… Gripping and enticing.’ Goodreads Reviewer

From internationally bestselling author Harriet Evans comes an intriguing and fresh new novel about a famous modern-day actress whose fate becomes intertwined with a glamorous movie star from the 1950s who vanished many years earlier. HOW CAN THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW YOU WHEN YOU HARDLY KNOW YOURSELF? Sophie Leigh’s real name is Sophie Sykes. But she hasn’t been called that for years, not since she became an A-list movie star. Living in Los Angeles, she can forget all about the life she left behind in England. But she’s lost something of herself in the process, too. Glamorous 1950s starlet Eve Noel had none of Sophie’s modern self-confidence. She didn’t choose her name. A Hollywood producer did. In fact, he made all her decisions—what to wear, when to smile, who to love. Right up until the day she simply vanished from the spotlight. No one knows where she went, or why. As Sophie’s perfect-on-the-outside world begins to crumble, her present col­lides with Eve’s past. She must unravel the mystery around her idol’s disappear­ance before it’s too late for them both.

Tribute to Young Mother's Part One was a collection of poetry. Poetry that I collected from the ages of 13 to 22. Some amateur and some complex. Part one was a summary of the past 10 years of my life basically. Part 2 is all new and raw material. All Mature and more articulate vocabulary. All well thought and concise material. Although Part one is special for being part one in general, we all get better with time. This part shall bring light to all the real struggles I faced. All those moments I felt like giving up. All those nights I stood up in tears. The real struggle, that no one hears of. I must feed my readers more knowledge and truth, so everyone can see the light of how hard it is to be the minority here in America. Let us rejoice the trials and tribulations, and prove how well we can overcome them!
