Everything Polly does, she does for her son Louis. Leaving her abusive partner, struggling to overcome alcoholism: she will do whatever it takes to keep Louis safe and happy.

Then Polly meets Ben. After years of heartache, could Ben give Polly the happiness she thought she'd never find again? Ben himself is struggling with acting as guardian to his orphaned niece Emily, and he and Polly bond over trying to be good parents.

Just as Polly thinks her life may be turning around, the unthinkable happens. When her new life balances on a knife edge, will she be able to stay strong for Louis one more time?

A tearjerking pageturner that will stay with you for ever, One Step Closer to You is perfect for fan of Jill Childs, Jodi Picoult and Lisa Wingate.
