Synopsis

Shortlisted for the 2017 Costa Book Awards Novel Award

Something good in a day of bad.

One of those rare novels that lives on long after the last page; Sarah Winman’s power to fully inhabit her characters only seems to deepen, and this is a novel that almost stings with truth.

It begins with a painting won in a raffle: fifteen sunflowers, hung on the wall by a woman who believes that men and boys are capable of beautiful things.

And then there are two boys, Ellis and Michael, who are inseparable. And the boys become men, and then Annie walks into their lives, and it changes nothing and everything.

Ellis, Michael and Annie, three points in a poignant triangle of loss and longing, a story of paths taken and the regrets that can haunt forever. Masterclass stuff from the author of When God was a Rabbit.

Sarah Winman grew up in Essex and now lives in London. She attended the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and went on to act in theatre, film and television.

Slim and poignant novel set in largely in OXFORD (and the South of France)
A slim novel that charts the friendship – nay, something deeper, the relationship – between Ellis and Michael, and then Annie when she becomes Ellis’s wife... READ MORE
