What if the past won't let you go?

London: 31st December, midnight. For Elsa and Jack, a stolen kiss becomes a shot at real happiness. Eight months later, they board a plane to begin a new life in San Francisco, where Jack has found his dream job working on the Golden Gate Bridge.

But this is not your average boy-meets-girl love story, for Jack’s new job comes with an extraordinary obligation. No one told him about the Jumpers – the men and women who try to leap from the bridge to their deaths every year. One in particular begins to haunt Jack, bringing back memories he thought safely buried. As he becomes more and more preoccupied, and Elsa, alone in a new city, becomes increasingly isolated, both retreat into their pasts, back down the paths that led them to that New Year’s Eve.

And the fragile love between them starts to unravel…

Product Description:

What if the past won't let you go? London. New Year's Eve. For Elsa and Jack a stolen kiss becomes a shot at real happiness and six months later they are boarding a plane to begin a new life in San Francisco where Jack has found his dream job working on the Golden Gate Bridge. But the dream comes at a price. No one told Jack about the Jumpers - the men and women who try to leap from the bridge to their deaths. One in particular begins to haunt Jack, plaguing both his dreams and his waking hours. As he becomes more and more preoccupied, he retreats from Elsa into his past and she too begins to lose herself in memories of before. And the fragile love between them starts to unravel...

Review:

"Evocative...Flitting between their separate pasts and precarious shared present, Cloke weaves a tale whose opacity feels pleasingly apiece with its foggy backdrop." (Hephzibah Anderson Daily Mail)

"Brilliant" ( Good Housekeeping)

"A masterfully written novel, by turns sparkling and melancholic, with vivid characters and painfully beautiful imagery" ( Morgan McCarthy, author of The Other Half of Me)

"An addictive page turner" ( Closer)

"A book to watch" ( Elle)

"A must-read novel" ( Prima)

"Beguiling... An absorbing, entertaining read: one that will see you nicely through a few long dark evenings" ( A Life in Books)

"An emotionally powerful, highly charged story... a fascinating story with an intriguing premise" ( CultureFly)
