Product description

A touching tale of change and first love by a top journalist and former editor of J17 and Bliss. If you love Cathy Cassidy or Louise Rennison, Fiona Foden is the new name to watch!

Josie has lived on the water her entire life. In fact, she finds it easier to walk on deck than on dry land. But now she is all at sea. Her beloved boat, Promise, has been condemned. Suddenly earthbound, stuck in a grotty flat miles from anyone she knows, Josie is forced to start again. Life seems bleak, until she meets Leon. Bold and daring, he shows Josie a new world of possibilities. He even knows how she can live on a boat again. But can Josie sail off into the sunset without him?
