A quick read from the bestselling storyteller, Josephine Cox. Love at first sight and a mysterious disappearance.
Best friends Mark and Pete board a train to London for a night out.
As Pete finds a seat he notices a girl sitting on a bench. She looks sad and lonely. When the train leaves, he can’t get her out of his mind because in her he has seen a glimpse of himself.
Over the coming months Pete sees the girl often, but when tempted to speak to her, his courage fails. Then one day she simply disappears. Hopelessly besotted by this girl he believes to be his kindred spirit, Pete will not rest until he finds her…
Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching –and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the ‘Superwoman of Great Britain’ Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
