"I raced through it."

Male authors are quite a rarity in this category, but it is interesting to read a man’s perspective on long-term love and relationships...

The narrative structure is based around the 24 most significant moments from their relationship, one for each hour in the day. It represents a final chance for Tom to tell his truth, and not simply what he imagines Esme wants to hear. I raced through it.

"[an] outstanding debut"

If you had to pick significant moments from your relationship, you'd probably choose the best ones - but how honest is too honest? Billed as 'a 10-year love story in 24 hours', this outstanding debut about mental health and relationships will make you want to remind those closest to you how much you love them.
