It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melanie Hudson | 1/8/2014

    " I will always buy David Nicholls books because I have loved his others so much. For some reason, I must be the only person in the world that this book just didn't do it for. Well written, but it just didn't grab me. "
