'Powerful and moving' RACHEL EDWARDS

'Absolutely loved it' LUCY DIAMOND

Two families divided by hate
A love that will not die.

Sylvie and Donna travel on the same train to work each day but have never spoken. Their families are on different sides of the bitter Brexit divide, although the tensions and arguments at home give them much in common.

What they don't know is that their eldest children, Rachid and Jodie, are about to meet for the first time and fall in love. Aware that neither family will approve, the teenagers vow to keep their romance a secret.

But as Sylvie's family feel increasingly unwelcome in England, a desire for a better life threatens Rachid and Jodie's relationship. Can their love unite their families - or will it end in tragedy?

It took me a little while to realise that this was a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet - Rachid and Jodie - and overall I thought it was well done. I did find some parts a bit over simplified with characters very... More
