Before I Saw You

The delightful and emotional love-story of 2021




The Flatshare meets Me Before You, this book flips modern dating on its head and tells the story of Alice and Alfie who meet on a hospital ward and gradually fall in love without ever seeing the other's face.

Can you fall in love with someone you've never seen? Alice has been badly burned. She hasn't been able to look at herself yet, let alone allow anyone else to see her. All she wants to do is hide away from the world.

Alfie might be dealing with his own injury but he's also determined to get Alice to talk to him. Slowly he starts to get to know her - all the while never being able to see her, but can Alice ever really let him in?
