That Part Was True

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Can you fall in love with someone you've never met? The deliciously warm, romantic novel for anyone who loved SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE or ONE DAY.

Reminiscent of One Day meets 84 Charing Cross Road, THAT PART WAS TRUE is a bittersweet story about falling in love and risking it all.

When Eve Petworth writes to Jackson Cooper to praise a scene in one of his books, they discover a mutual love of cookery and food. As their letters criss-cross the ocean that lies between them, friendship and then romance blossoms despite Jackson's colourful love life and Eve's tense relationship with her soon-to-be-married daughter. Little by little, Eve and Jack begin to believe that they may have a chance to change their lives and possibly get a second chance at happiness. They just need to actually meet...

A gorgeous, escapist read about food, friendship and falling in love from afar...
