'One Day for a new generation' Grazia

'We're calling it . . . This Love is the new One Day' Sunday Times Style

'A beautifully written, generous-hearted, clever, tender, fresh and unputdownable novel about queerness, family and forgiveness. I loved This Love.' Elizabeth Day

Named a BEST BOOK OF THE MONTH by The Sunday Times Style, Apple Books, Prima, Cosmopolitan, i NEWS, Stylist

When Mae and Ari meet their final year at the University of Leeds, their connection is magnetic. Mae, whilst stubborn and no stranger to breaking hearts, needs Ari's bright light to guide her out of her self-centred ways; Ari, vibrant, charming and reeling in the aftermath of a scandal in New York, clings to Mae as his grounding anchor.

As the years sweep by, the two traverse the tumult of life: toxic partners and hidden secrets, the heavy weight of grief, and a complicated, unignorable desire to start a family . . . If they can hold onto one another in the face of the relentless past and the inevitable future, they might discover how to build something beautiful out of their expansive, boundary-breaking love.

Spanning ten years of extraordinary friendship, This Love is a vivid and epic tale of finding your soulmates, building an unconventional family, and the limitless, ever-changing forms love can take.

We're calling it . . . This Love is the new One Day - The Sunday Times Style

The best parts of Sally Rooney and Gabrielle Zevin merge for this exquisitely paced, modern yet timeless story of love and friendship . . . Pitch perfect, I adored this completely absorbing and compulsive gem. - John Marrs, author of The Good Samaritan

Incredible . . . a beautiful book full of emotion that will stay with me for a long time. - Nina Pottell, Books Editor at Prima

I wouldn't be at all surprised if This Love was my book of 2024. The world-building and storytelling is exquisite, the characters so real, the plot perfect. I'm madly jealous of everyone who hasn't read it yet. - Laura Pearson

Bursting with queer joy and tenderness, This Love is original, compelling and totally gorgeous. An immensely enjoyable ode to the extraordinary power of friendship and forging your own kind of family. I adored it. - Roxy Bourdillon, DIVA magazine

I had a whirlwind romance with this book. Rarely have I seen myself so clearly in literature. Safe to say I loved it. - Suzi Ruffell

Anchored by complicated real-world challenges, this novel explores the weight of secrets, toxic partnerings, grief and desire all whilst celebrating the greatest love in so many lives, friendship. - Evening Standard

An intensely readable novel about all the love that doesn't fit inside society's neat boundaries - Laura Bates

This Love is everything you want from a novel, it's funny, sexy, and moving. It's a book full of queer joy that lets us imagine all the hopeful possibilities in the word 'family'. - Claire Lynch, author of small: on motherhoods

This is a book I will return to again and again. I finished it in the early hours of the morning and was bereft. It's about relationships, our concept of family, what soulmate means . . . I could go on! It's beautiful. - Jennie Godfrey

Touching, surprising and gloriously enjoyable debut, which charts the challenges and joys of unconventional families, of fluidity and friendship, and of love in every possible incarnation. - Marie-Claire Chappet, Harper's Bazaar
