'I immediately read The Memory Book and it's WONDERFUL ... I'm so happy because she's written other books and its so lovely to find a writer you love who has a backlist' Marian Keyes
Kitty Simpson is a firm believer in fairy tales. And when Fergus Kelly kisses her under a shooting star (or perhaps a banking airplane), she simply knows that he must be The One.
But eighteen months, a storybook wedding and an adorable but accidental baby later, Kitty's life isn't the perfect idyll she thought it would be. She has her Prince Charming, her lady-of-leisure lifestyle and her longed-for escape from city life, but Fergus spends most of his time commuting, looking after Ella is surprisingly exhausting, and a quiet life in the country has her pining for London.
Suddenly confident, self-assured Kitty isn't sure who she is any more. Cracks are appearing in her fairy tale. And when they're compounded by her unexpected attraction to another man, happily ever after seems a long way off...
