'Beautifully written and filled with emotion, I genuinely couldn't recommend Saturdays At Noon enough' 5***** Reader Review
Emily just wants to keep the world away.
Jake wants to keep his family together.
The two of them couldn't be more different.
When Emily meets Jake at an anger management class, sparks fly - but not the good kind.
And when they're paired together, things go from bad to worse.
Emily refuses to share her deepest secrets with a total stranger, and Jake doesn't see how opening up will help him to bond with his six-year-old son, Alfie.
But when Alfie meets Emily, something extraordinary happens.
Could one small boy change everything?
