    It's 1961 and attractive, bright 16 (and three quarters) year-old schoolgirl, Annabelle 'Belle' Green is on the brink of womanhood and can't wait for adult life to begin. One rainy day, her suburban life is upended by the arrival of an unsuitable suitor, 30- ish Mr Gold.

    Summary

    "She comes back that first summer brimming with excitement, and she seems to almost fill your tiny flat all on her own, as she raves about the boys she’s met and the lecturers and even the architecture, all the things you’d practically forgotten you missed. You’re glad she’s here though, how could you not be, you’ve missed her something fierce all the time she’s been gone, and you’ve been glad of her letters and now you’re glad she’s here, real, in your living room. You can’t live off letters alone."

    Summary

    In Paris, sitting in an all too familiar street café at Montmartre with Thomas, she half-expects David to walk up and sit down at the table beside them. When she goes to a jazz club, every dark head she glimpses on the dance floor reminds her of Danny. Every blonde, tall woman on the streets makes her want to call out Helen's name.

    Summary

    (Sequel to and there are silhouettes behind your eyes.) She hums under her breath as he drives, watching the world pass outside the window, and wonders if time always stands still when she’s by Danny’s side, or if it’s another thing she’s likely to grow out of. She’s not entirely sure she wants to, but then that could be childish fantasy itself.
