LOVE, LOVE ME DO
‘An astonishing debut, Love, Love Me Do is utterly original, completely unique, deeply touching and has a universal appeal that will resonate with men and woman alike.’
1963. The year the Beatles first top the charts. The year Martin Luther King has a dream. The year Truman Bird moves his family from their home in Brighton to a dilapidated caravan in the Ashdown Forest – then disappears.
Truman’s a charmer, a chancer, a liar. He’s always got away with it, too. But now he’s gone a dangerous step too far and only has one day to put things right – before he loses everything.
‘In a story of laughter and tears, Haysom takes us on one family’s journey to achieve their dreams, and shows us that for every lie and secret in every family, there is also a love. And in the end it’s love that counts.’
The party of the sixties is well and truly over and what’s left is the hangover. It’s 1973 – a time of unemployment, picket lines, the IRA. There’s violence on football terraces, a crash on the stock market. But it’s also a time when you can imagine the stars.
IMAGINE will be published overseas and as an e-book on March 7th 2015 and as a paperback in the UK on December 3rd.
