It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have in simple terms simply met. yet after just one day jointly, they can not cease wondering each other. Over 20 years, snapshots of that courting are printed at the comparable day—July 15th—of every year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and overlooked possibilities, laughter and tears. and because the actual that means of this one the most important day is printed, they need to come to grips with the character of affection and lifestyles itself.

Her bottled-red hair was almost wilfully badly cut, alone in front of the mirror probably, or by Tilly whatsername, that loud, large girl she shared this flat with.
Besides, Emma was a long way away at this moment, changing the world from a mini-bus on the ring road of a provincial town, and what was all this to do with Emma anyway? Tove’s knee-length boots sagged in the corner of the room now, in the hostel where overnight visitors were strictly forbidden.

The much-advertised Second Summer of Love had been one of melancholy and lost momentum. Even her beloved Edinburgh had started to bore and depress her. Living in her University town felt like staying on at a party that everyone else had left, and so in October she had given up the flat in Rankeillor Street and moved back to her parents for a long, fraught, wet winter of recriminations and slammed doors and afternoon TV in a house that now seemed impossibly small. ‘But you’ve got a double-first!
