- In stock
'A wonderful book about the beautiful Alice Martineau that both inspired meand made me cry uncontrollably when I finished it' SUNDAY TIMES
Tom fell in love with Alice the moment he saw her. He realises that being with her will not be easy, but she is a force of nature, a burst of sunlight in his otherwise ordinary world.
Some people might look at Alice and think she has everything, but Alice knows she is not like other women. Her life is complicated, unpredictable, difficult. Alice does not like pity. All she wants to do - all she's ever wanted to do - is sing.
Alice has been told not to follow her dreams. So has Tom. But when fate has already dealt a tough hand, it's time to stop listening to everyone else and follow their hearts . . .
