Waterstones Says

A moving, warm story about finding love in the most unlikely situation, from the author of The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew. Filled with Johnson’s trademark humour, empathy and generosity of spirit, My One True North is a comfort read of the first order.

The brand new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew - a gorgeous read full of hope, warmth and heartfelt emotion.

Laurie and Pete should never have met.
But fate has pushed them together for a reason.


Six months ago, on the same night, Laurie and Pete both lost their partners.
Struggling to manage the grief, they join the same counselling group - and meet each other.

From their sadness, Pete and Laurie find happiness growing and they sense a fresh new beginning.
Except, the more they talk, the more they begin to spot the strange parallels in their stories.
Then Pete discovers a truth that changes everything.

But, as surely as a compass points north, some people cannot be kept apart.

My One True North is a story of friendship and what love means, of secrets uncovered, teashops on corners and the northern lights.
