What's it all about? - Two people. One love story. 12 hours to tell it. Whir, beep, click, breath. Whir, beep, click, breath. Pippa Gallagher is rushed in to hospital following a traffic accident. As Pippa lies unconscious, she is aware of fragments. The day she met Steve Gallagher, her best friend and the man who would become the love of her life. The heartbreak she felt that night as she got into her car, her eyes blurry from tears. Meanwhile Steve sits at her bedside, his eyes fixed on her pale, still face. He has no idea where his wife was going when she crashed. No clue as to why she became distracted behind the wheel. All he knows is that she is his world. And that he wasn't there when she needed him most. For the next twelve hours, Steve tells Pippa all the reasons he loves her. But is it too late? Can Pippa find her way back to him? Gripping, moving and beautifully observed, this is a love story told from both sides. 'A glorious love story with a heart of gold that you won't be able to put down’ DEBORAH FRANCES-WHITE 'Not just a beautifully tender love story but also a wonderful journey of exaltation, desperation and heartbreak - lifeaffirming' TOM ALLEN 'Beautiful... This drowns in love' SIOBHÁN MCSWEENEY
