'His most accomplished and moving novel yet' Lisa Jewell'Emotionally high-voltage' MetroFrom the author of The Man I Think I Know***Strangers living worlds apart. Strangers with nothing in common. But it wasn't always that way...

Kerry Hayes is single mum, living on a tough south London estate. She provides for her son by cleaning houses she could never afford. Taken into care as a child, Kerry cannot forget her past.

Noah Martineau is a successful barrister with a beautiful wife, daughter and home in fashionable Primrose Hill. Adopted as a young child, Noah never looks back. When Kerry contacts Noah, the sibling she lost on the day they were torn apart as children, she sets in motion a chain of events that will change both of their lives forever.

By turns funny and moving, Half a World Away is a story that will stay with you long after you read its final page. ***Readers love Half a World Away!'These are people who matter, situations one can believe. Most readers will find themselves caring very much.
