JULIE COHEN Together a poignant, shocking love story told backwards over five decades, with a devastating secret at its heart, set to be the reading group book of the summer.

On a morning that seems just like any other, Robbie wakes in his bed, his wife Emily asleep beside him, as always. He rises and dresses, makes his coffee, feeds his dogs, just as he usually does. But then he leaves Emily a letter, and does something that will break her heart. As the years go back all the way to 1962, Robbie’s actions become clearer as we discover the story of a couple with a terrible secret – one they will do absolutely anything to protect.

Is this a great love story? Or is it a story about great love?
