One spark will illuminate both their lives
Alice is settling down. It might not be the adventurous life she once imagined, but more than anything she wants to make everyone happy – her steady boyfriend, her over-protective mother – even if it means a little part of her will always feel stifled.
Max is shaking things up. After a devastating injury, he is determined to prove himself. To find the man beyond the disability, to escape his smothering family and go on an adventure.
A trip to Sri Lanka is Alice’s last hurrah – her chance to throw herself into the heat, chaos and colour of a place thousands of miles from home.
It’s also the moment she meets Max.
Alice doesn’t know it yet, but her whole life is about to change.
Max doesn’t know it yet, but he’s the one who’s going to change it.
This is a gorgeous book. As always, Isabelle Broom’s imagery is fantastic and her characters are so real.
I’ve never had a particular interest in visiting Sri Lanka, but after reading this book, I would certainly change my mind.
I liked both of the central characters, Alice and Max. We get wonderful insight into both of their personalities and it’s easy to see from the start how well suited they are.
The pace of the story moves perfectly, with the wonderfully evocative imagery, and the build up of relationships.
A beautiful and enjoyable book that will stay with me for a long time. Highly recommended.
