Waterstones Says

The author of Half A World Away returns with another wryly comic slice of romance, as primary school teacher Helen and LA rock star Ben tilt at a second chance at love.

Helen and Ben parted as heartbroken 18-year-olds and went their very separate ways.

Twenty years later, mother-of-two-teenagers Helen is still in Manchester, a part-time primary teacher, stunned by the behaviour of her love-rat husband. In an old T shirt and scruffy jeans, she feels at the lowest point in her life.

And suddenly, impossibly, Ben is standing on her doorstep. Tired maybe, lonely even, but clearly still the world-famous, LA-based multi-millionaire rockstar he has become. Can you ever go back?

For Helen and Ben, so much has happened in the years between. But just to sit in the kitchen for a while and talk - that would be nice.

Before the world comes crashing in.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Mike Gayle creates real, warm characters you will recognise. Amid real human dilemmas, the heart and goodwill always shines through - Jojo Moyes

A Song of Me and You is vintage Mike Gayle! It's full of relatable characters and as Mike takes us on a journey through all their high and lows and we're with them every step of the way. A Song of Me and You is a wonderful story about the things that really matter in life - family, friendship and falling in love - and a poignant reminder to cherish them while we can. It's the perfect book to celebrate Mike's 25 years as an author! - Ruth Hogan

Poignant and powerful. Gorgeous! - Milly Johnson

Poignant, uplifting and utterly charming, I was swept away by Ben and Helen's story, equal parts relatable and fantastic but always, always pulling on my heart strings. Mike Gayle, then, now and forever one of the best - Lindsey Kelk

Moving, uplifting, unforgettable. Mike always writes from the heart and creates stories we fall in love with - Lisa Jewell

Funny, real and unexpected, a story that will keep you hooked to the very last page - Alexandra Potter

A Song of Me & You is a heartbreaking and utterly compelling second-chance love story. Brimming with emotion, it has much to say about loss, loyalty, and the power of self-belief. An unforgettable read - Holly Miller

This second-chance romance comes from the sure hands of Mike Gayle, known for his ability to pluck the heartstrings - Daily Mail

Public service announcement: Mike Gayle's latest is going to toy with your emotions, churn you up, and spit you out - but it's totally worth it . . . powerful storytelling and well-drawn characters - Heat

Gayle's 19th novel is a rollercoaster of emotion - wise, insightful and bittersweet in the best of ways - CultureFly

A joyful celebration of life, it's also a study in grief, second chances, and what can happen when you truly believe in yourself. - Heat

Tender and unforgettable - Woman and Home

A wonderful story about first love and second chances - Good Housekeeping

A glorious story about the power of love, friendship and roots - Sun

Wonderful - Prima

Emotional and engrossing, do not miss this top read - Fabulous

With Gayle's ability to illustrate how people are thinking and feeling, this is a story of love and friendship, heartache and hope - My Weekly

Mike Gayle's stunning novel takes the reader on a journey of joyful highs and heartbreaking lows - Sunday Express

Touching, funny, beautifully characterised and undeniably romantic, this may be the escapist pageturner of the summer - The Sunday Times

Mike Gayle is a natural storyteller, he gifts us these fully rounded, painfully honest characters and allows us to live with them for a short period of time but that's enough to care about them and to almost grieve when we reach the end of the novel and have to say goodbye to them, hoping things will be OK. His books may be fiction, but the themes he writes about are real and the issues and questions raised are those that we face day to day. - The Leader

An absolutely wonderful read - a gorgeous, touching story with characters you root for fervently - Tracy Rees

This was wonderful, and a testament to true friendship. - Prima (Book of the Year 2023 roundup)
