Description

"If ever a couple was 'meant to be,' it's Tess and Gus. This is such a witty, poignant, and uplifting story of two lives crisscrossing over the years, with near miss after near miss...? I couldn't put it down."-Sophie Kinsella A wryly romantic debut novel with echoes of One Day that asks, what if you just walked by the love of your life, but didn't even know it? "TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE." Tess can't get the motto from her mother's kitchen knickknack out of her head, even though she's in Florence on an idyllic vacation before starting university in London. Gus is also visiting Florence, on a holiday with his parents seven months after tragedy shattered their lives. Headed to medical school in London, he's trying to be a dutiful son but longs to escape and discover who he really is. A chance meeting brings these eighteen-year-olds together for a brief moment-the first of many times their paths will crisscross as time passes and their lives diverge from those they'd envisioned. Over the course of the next sixteen years, Tess and Gus will face very different challenges and choices. Separated by distance and circumstance, the possibility of these two connecting once more seems slight. But while fate can separate two people, it can also bring them back together again...?

Professional reviews

"Narrators Anna Acton and Finlay Robertson alternate chapters in recounting the lives of Tess and Gus as they periodically intersect over 16 years. Tess, portrayed in a fluid voice by Acton, struggles with her mother's death as she raises her younger sister and seeks meaning in her life. Gus, portrayed by Robertson, feels he's living in the shadow of his late brother, who was killed in a skiing accident one Christmas day. As the two characters intersect sporadically over the years--through loves, losses, marriages, love affairs, and disappointments--Acton and Robertson dramatize their readings with gusto and emotion. Listeners will smile, laugh, and cry as they await that magical moment with another chance meeting brings Tess and Gus together again. M.B.K.
