For fans of Colleen Hoover and Rosie Walsh: this book will break your heart… then put it back together.

Two years together. Twenty years apart. One day to change their story.

Benjamin’s world is turned upside down the day he meets Clara. Instinctively, he knows that she is his person and he is hers, but the events of one devastating night will take their lives in very different directions.

Twenty years later, a bombing is reported in the city where Clara and Ben met, and she is pulled back to a place she tries not to remember and the first love she could never forget. Searching for Ben, Clara prays that twenty years of silence is about to end.

But is it too late to put right what went wrong?This is not a love story. But it is a story of first love, of the mistakes people make, and the lengths they’ll go to put things right.
