Reading this during lockdown was the perfect antidote to a trying time. Whenever I put it down, the characters call me back. When 16-year-old Lucas finds a balloon with a note inside it, a lifelong friendship with Emmie is formed. But now, aged 30, Lucas is marrying someone else. Will it change their friendship forever?
On the eve of her 30th Birthday, Emmie Blue believes Lucas is finally ready to admit he shares her feelings. Ever since they first enetered each other's lives when Lucas discovered the red balloon Emmie sent of into the sky carrying her secret message, nothing has come between them. Until Lucas announces he's getting married — to someone else. Heartbroken, Emmie must now reassess her life. A beautiful evocative read.
