One Day meets The Time Traveler's Wife in this spellbinding, magical debut novel about love, loss, hope and heartbreak that shows us that the world can be as desolate or as beautiful as the comets that pass overhead.
Róisín and François meet at a research station on the frozen ice sheets of Antarctica; each has been brought to this wild, remote location by a fierce desire to explore the world, but to do so they have both had to make difficult choices.
As the story loops back through their lives, catching up with them only when a comet is visible in the skies above, we see how their lives have intertwined but never intersected until this moment. Theirs are lives filled with love and hope and history and heartbreak, in a story that shows how strangers can be connected and ghosts can be real, and how the way we choose to see the world can be as desolate or as beautiful as the comets themselves.
