Eloise James was still in school when she met the love of her life, her teacher, Paul Bridgestock. With an age gap of twelve years between them, the couple faced separation. But against the odds, Paul successfully allayed the concerns of the school authorities, and the friendship was allowed to continue. Love flourished and Paul was eventually accepted by Eloise's parents as a prospective son-in-law.

However, following the sudden death of his wife and facing the prospect of a lonely future, Eloise's father forbade her from further contact with Paul. Paul was killed in a car crash soon after, thus ending all prospect of a future reconciliation. There would now be no wedding, no children... Eloise's life seemed over.

Now it's the future and no-one can match up, even her latest love Geoffrey. When a suicide attempt takes her back in time to the day Paul was killed, the two lovers meet again. But is she destined to save him from the crash... Or must she learn to let go?

Susan weaves an intricate thread of history throughout the tale, creating a story that is both heart warming and heart rending, a tale of love and time travel reminiscent of Audrey Niffenegger's Theâ Time Traveller's Wife.

A romantic at heart, Susan started writing love stories in her teens, and was one of the last teenagers to elope to Gretna Green before the age of majority was lowered to eighteen. But for her the reality of married life could not compete with her ideal, and the marriage sadly ended in divorce. She now lives in Somerset, where she divides her time between writing, reading and gardening
