Beautifully written - I couldn't put it down' EMMA GANNON 'Like if One Day had been written by Sally Rooney' 5***** READER REVIEW 'An intricate story of love . . . A beautiful piece of writing' SUNDAY EXPRESS _______ Do you remember your first love? Nick and Anna are young. They meet at a cinema, both working summer jobs. They've lived different lives. Carry secret hurts. But they're drawn together by something neither understands. Fast forward and they've long ago gone their separate ways. Inhabiting different worlds. Shaped by the hurt they bear. Yet neither can quite forget the other. So when tragedy brings them back together, they find themselves asking . . . What if we took a chance on another life? _______ 'I was devastated to finish this book. It broke my heart, and if you're a fan of Sally Rooney, Another Life is something you'll want. The characters are real, the themes of grief, family and loss are so raw. Chapman is a master' Daily Record 'Fans of David Nicholls will adore this complex love story' Prima 'The Romeo and Juliet of our generation' Gillian McAllister 'This book broke me in the best way. A heart wrenching portrait . . . It feels a bit like if One Day had been written by Sally Rooney' 5***** READER REVIEW 'Stunning. Written with such poignancy, full of nostalgia, unspoken longing and the agony of wrong turns' BETH MORREY 'A complex, beautiful, multilayered debut exploring love in all its forms' WOMAN'S WEEKLY 'I have a feeling that this will be one of my favourite books of 2021! I could not put it down, it's so, so good' 5***** READER REVIEW
