She did what was right for her children. But now she faces an impossible choice …

When Alice’s husband, Ben, dies she is utterly devastated, not least for her grieving daughters. But just when she has begun to rebuild their lives, she receives a phone call that turns her family’s world upside down once more.

Ben is still alive.

The children are overjoyed to have their father back and assume life will continue as before. But Alice isn’t so sure. Both she and Ben have changed.

Keeping her heartbroken family together meant Alice had to find a strength she never knew she had. And in the darkest days, she drew her strength from Dan: her friend, and rock in hard times.

Once more Alice has to stay strong for her family. But can she and Ben really carry on the way they were? And is that what Alice really wants?

A deeply moving novel that will have you completely gripped to the very last page, The Way We Were is perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Jojo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks.
