Vince and Joy

Lisa Jewell

'You know that was the best thing that ever happened to me, don't you?'
She smiled. 'Me, too.'

July, 1986. Vince and Joy have their whole lives ahead of them on the day they meet. Two weeks later they must part, each having lost a piece of their heart to the other. They won't see one another for seven years.

Where will they be then?

And in the years that follow? What will become of Vince and Joy?
