Publisher's Summary

Two people. One choice. What if?

Every love story has a beginning....

It's 11th September 2001. Lucy and Gabe meet in New York on a day that will change their lives - and the world - forever. As the city burns behind them, they kiss for the very first time.

Over the next 13 years, they are torn apart, then brought back together, time and time again. It's a journey of dreams, of desires, of jealousy, of forgiveness - and, above all, of love.

As Lucy is faced with a devastating choice, she wonders whether their love is a matter of destiny or chance.

What if this is how their story ends?

Me Before You meets One Day in this passionate debut novel, The Light We Lost, an epic love story about the heartrending decision that one woman must make....

Now translated into 28 languages.

    Relationship decision Love


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I keep trying to see it coming no great surprise


    What about Jill Santopolo’s performance did you like?

    I liked the performance I think having the author read the book gave it greater depth and helped me to understand the characters better.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It makes you think about life and love and relationships. Can't say too much or it will spoil the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a listen however I found it very fluffy in places.
