CATHY KELLY It Started With Paris

The Sunday Times bestselling author of The Honey Queen returns with her funny, emotional, heart-warming new novel. It all started with Paris . . . At the top of the Eiffel Tower, a young man proposes to his girlfriend, cheered on by delighted tourists. With her trademark warmth and insight, Cathy Kelly weaves a delightful tale spinning out from this once-in-a-lifetime moment, drawing together a terrific cast of characters with stories of their own.

Grace, a divorced head-teacher, starting to wonder whether she faces a lifetime of being alone. The impending wedding of her son means that she’s spending more time with her ex-husband. After ten years apart, is it possible she’s made a mistake? ‘Wise, warm, compassionate and full of characters I loved . . . it’s like having a great gossip with your best friends’ Marian Keyes on Once in a Lifetime Cathy Kelly is published around the world, with millions of books in print.
