Jess is a struggling single mother living on the south coast. Making ends meet working two jobs to provide for Nicky, her loner stepson whose life is being made miserable by local bullies and Tanzie, her maths whiz daughter.
Ed has made a big mistake and is now being investigated by the FSA and has been advised to leave London for a while.
Nicky’s life is being made a living nightmare by local bullies for daring to be different. His long dark hair and mascara making him an easy target.
Tanzie is offered a scholarship in a top school. Jess knows this is a massive opportunity for Tanzie but there is now way she can afford the fees. That is until Tanzie is told of an Olympiad offering a £5000 prize. It seems all their prayers have been answered, but how will they get there. Jess cannot afford the train fares and the car sitting in the garage is untaxed, uninsured and barely even roadworthy.
Ed becomes an unlikely knight in shining armour and offers to take them and their huge bear of a dog to Scotland in his new car.
The journey begins and a tale of love, hurt, betrayal, fear, disappointment and hope unfolds with a few laughs and a few tears along the way. A real page-turner which proved difficult to put down.
If you liked Me Before You, you will love this brilliantly written hear warming tale.
