Publisher's summary

“A poignant, heart-tugging, life-affirming story that will wrap around you like a hug during any season. Keep tissues nearby!” (Josie Silver, number one New York Times best-selling author of One Day in December)

It started with a letter. It ended with a love story.

Every December, Josie posts a letter from her home in London to the parents she lost on Christmas night many years ago. Each year, she writes the same three words: Missing you, always. But this year, her annual trip to the postbox is knocked off course by a bicycle collision with a handsome stranger - a stranger who will change the course of Josie's life.

Josie always thought she was the only one who avoided the Christmas season, but this year, Max has his own reasons for doing the same - and coincidence leads them to spending the holiday together. Aglow with new love, Josie thinks this might be the start of something special.

Only for Max to disappear without saying goodbye.

Over the course of the next year, Max and Josie will find that fate continues to bring them together in places they'd never expect. New York City. Edinburgh. The quiet English countryside. And it turns out, Max had every reason to leave and every reason to stay. But what does fate hold for Josie and Max as Christmas approaches again?

A devastating, romantic, life-affirming love story, Always, in December will stay with listeners long after they've finished the last chapter.

Critic reviews

“I adored this sweepingly romantic, captivating love story. A poignant page-turner, this gorgeous book is as uplifting and hopeful as it is heartbreaking. If you’re looking for a true will-they-won't-they tearjerker to capture your heart this Christmas, look no further.” (Holly Miller, author of The Sight of You)
