Happily Ever After

Absorbing storytelling at its very best – the compelling novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author


You can t escape the ties that bind. The past catches up with you no matter how far you try to run…


This is a story of a girl who doesn t believe in happy endings. Or happy families. It s the story of Eleanor Bee, a shy, book-loving girl who vows to turn herself into someone bright, shiny and confident, someone sophisticated. Someone who knows how life works.


But life has a funny way of catching us unawares. Turns out that Elle doesn t know everything about love. Or life. Or how to keep the ones we love safe….


Absorbing, poignant and unforgettable, Happily Ever After is a compelling story of a fractured family and a girl who doesn t believe in love.
