Description

'Quirky, clever, and original, this will break your heart, but put it back together again'
Katie Fforde

'This is a very special book indeed: funny, powerful, heart-wrenching and so poignant'
Jo Thomas

'One of my favourites of 2018' Amazon reviewer

Fans of Jojo Moyes, Cecilia Ahern and Marian Keyes will love The Songs of Us by Emma Cooper, a laugh-out-loud, funny and heartbreaking novel of love, loss and what it means to be a family.

If Melody hadn't run out of de-icer that day, she would never have slipped and banged her head. She wouldn't be left with a condition that makes her sing when she's nervous. And she definitely wouldn't have belted out the Arctic Monkeys' 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' in assembly at her son's school.

If Dev hadn't taken the kids to the zoo that day, then the accident wouldn't have happened. He wouldn't have left Flynn and Rose without a dad. Or shattered the love of his life's heart.

But if they hadn't seen the missing person report that day, they might never have taken the trip to Cornwall. And, in the last place they expected, discovered what it really means to be 'Us'.

Readers love The Songs of Us:

'Rarely does a book come along that is as unique and mesmerising as The Songs Of Us'

'Reminiscent of (and in my humble opinion right up there with) Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and Cecilia Ahern's PS I Love You'

'It had me laughing and crying in equal measures'

'The Songs of Us will soften your heart and make you smile'

'Get your hands on a copy now. TRUST ME.'

'This book is something really special, I might even venture to say, perfect'

'I laughed, cried, felt sad and felt heart-warmed in equal measures'

'I could not put it down ... I really do highly recommend this book'

    Beautiful read difficult at the beginning but once into it I found it profound and very moving. I can't wait to read more from this author.
