ABOUT THE BOOK
Imagine you meet a man, spend six glorious days together, and fall in love. And it’s mutual: you’ve never been so certain of anything. So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him.
But he doesn’t call.
Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they're wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence.
What do you do when you finally discover you're right? That there is a reason -- and that reason is the one thing you didn't share with each other?
Boy, when I picked up THE MAN WHO DIDN'T CALL by Rosie Walsh I expected an entertaining read (which it is) but I did not expect such a twisting tale of love, loss, guilt, and grief that would take my breath away and make me ache for the characters that I came to love so much.
Sarah knows what it's like to lose someone you love and when she left for L.A. all those years ago she was determined to reinvent herself into the strong and capable person that she wishes she had always been. Now separated, Sarah is home for her annual visit to the UK which always brings back difficult memories, when she meets Eddie. Wonderful, caring, unique Eddie and in the space of one amazing week they fall in love. With promises of being together when he gets back from a trip, Sarah realises that she has never loved like this before. But when Eddie doesn't call and appears to have fallen off the social media grid, Sarah is desperate to uncover the truth. Their connection was real, wasn't it?
But as Sarah begins to dig deeper with the help of her friends, the truth may be so much harder to deal with than all of the crazy scenarios that are running through her head ... for everyone.
THE MAN WHO DIDN'T CALL by Rosie Walsh is a superb story that really gets the heart and the emotion of the plot bang on as I cried, smiled and ached for Sarah at every new development. The story moves from the present when Sarah is trying to discover where Eddie is, to their magical seven days together, and this lets us really see them and get to know them properly. There is tension, heartbreak, sadness, and loss, but there is also hope and joy, and the healing power of love is shown to perfection.
THE MAN WHO DIDN'T CALL by Rosie Walsh is everything you want in a novel and I could not put it down - I blame the author for my laundry piling up 😜 - and I think this book would translate perfectly onto our screens. A must-read for 2018!!
Rosie Walsh has lived and travelled all over the world, working as a documentary producer and writer. The Man Who Didn't Call is her first book under her own name. She lives in Bristol with her partner and son.
