From the Back Cover
‘Poignant . . . a beautifully written tale of enduring love’ Rowan Coleman
You find your soulmate . . .
Some people stare love in the face for years before they find it. Zoe and Ed fumbled their way into adulthood, both on different paths – but always in the same direction. Years later, having navigated dead-end jobs and chaotic house shares, romance finally blossoms. Their future together looks set . . .
Then the unthinkable happens.
One morning, on his way to work, Ed is knocked off his bike and dies. Now Zoe must find a way to survive. But she’s not ready to let go of the memories. How can she forget all of the happy times, their first kiss, everything they’d built together? Zoe decides she has to tell Ed all the things she never said.
Now it’s too late. Or is it?

A fabulous book, that I am still thinking about even after finishing. Fantastic characterisation and you have no idea how the book is going to finish so it keeps you gripped until the end. It's also not one of those books where the ending is a little flat. A delightful read and thoroughly recommended.
The story felt familiar with the time travel/life changing at first, but with the added story of not being able to have a baby made it so much more than just another story. It added that extra bout of desperation to an already desperate situation. The emotions run extremely high and readers feel their heart almost stop a beat as Zoe tries everything to change her history. I loved every page of this book and that characters were totally amazing and so true to life. Cant wait for another belter from Clare Swatman.
I wasn't sure at the start, where we begin with a funeral for Zoe's husband we do not know, and do not feel particularly sad for. But by the end, I really wanted things to work out well for them, wanted all the small changes Zoe had tried to make to have some effect.
The time hop, back to 1993 at first, felt like it echoed some aspects of my life as I went to university and met my husband in a shared student house at a similar time. So it felt almost surreal in places. We haven't had a difficult marriage or trouble having children, but I could empathise with the difficulties they faced and the frustration Zoe had of only being able to make small changes that made very little difference.
Very emotional (as my tear stained pillow will attest), it drew me in and kept me interested to the very end.
