'One Day for a new generation' Grazia

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

Find yourself in this sweeping tale of queer friendship and chosen families that will keep you laughing, crying and endlessly turning the page. 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 modernand 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.

'Astute, tender and utterly joy-filled. This is the love story we've been waiting for' Elle

"Everything you want from a novel... funny, sexy, and moving" Claire Lynch, author of small: on motherhoods
