An emotional, captivating and ultimately uplifting novel from
this uniquely talented author.

Christine Rose is crossing the Ha’penny Bridge in Dublin late one night when she sees a stranger, Adam, poised to jump. Desperate to help, she talks him into a reckless deal: if he gives her two weeks – till his 35th birthday – she’ll prove that life is worth living.

But as the clock ticks and the two of them embark on late-night escapades and romantic adventures, what Christine has really promised seems impossible…

A novel to make you laugh, cry and appreciate life, this is Cecelia Ahern at her thoughtful and surprising best.

Inspiration For This Book

I wanted to tell a romantic love story but in an unconventional way. Poking fun at the many ‘How To’ books that boast of following easy steps to finding love and happiness, I took two people who had fallen out of love with life and who learn that in reluctantly opening their eyes to the joys around them, it can open their eyes to each other.
