Summary

They were each other’s first love. But that was a lifetime ago....

Eunice Starling didn’t mean to fall for Joan Hart, but she did. How could she resist those stunning eyes, that dynamite smile? Months later, she didn’t want to leave Joan and marry a suitable man, but she did. Over the years, Eunice tried to forget, but she never forgave herself. Now, 60 years later, Eunice comes face to face with Joan. They might be older, but Joan’s eyes are still the same. But after so long apart, is that enough? Are the pair destined to finally live out their big London dreams?  

For the latest instalment in the London Romance series, best-selling author Clare Lydon travels back in time to uncover the story of Eunice and Joan, and the love that was ripped from their grasp. Told from 1958 London to the present day, get ready to have your heart broken, then pieced back together again. This is a story of burning passion, shattered dreams, and ultimately, enduring, endless love.

Beautiful romance

When India Contelli and the lost loves she reunited in ‘Hot London Nights’ appeared I briefly thought I’d downloaded the wrong book but quickly realised that this was the story of those star crossed lovers. A neat segue into this new story and a fabulous tale made all the more poignant by the fact you know from the start how it ends. It has all the hallmarks of Clare Lydon’s books-well written with fully fledged complex characters and is brought brilliantly to life by the narrator. Loved it. Plan to listen again.

tearful

born in 58, same yr as the start of this book. I knew this would be sad, but it's beautifully written and engrossed me into the age, with people's lifestyle excellent historical fiction , a romantic novel like no other. the change in narrator added that aura around the story, make sure you have a box of tissues as I did and enjoy 60 yrs and thankfully how ladies like these helped change perception, wonderful.

I'm in bits

What a wonderful love story. A real journey through time and how easy we have it now by comparison. You will need a hanky or two. Enjoy.
