The Flatshare meets Me Before You, this book flips modern dating on its head and tells the story of Alice and Alfie who meet on a hospital ward and gradually fall in love without ever seeing the other's face.

'A charming page-turner of a romance' Laura Jane Williams, bestselling author of Our Stop 'A heart-warming tale . . . sure to tug at your heart-strings' Woman's Own _________________ CAN YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN?

Alice and Alfie are strangers. But they sleep next to each other every night.

Alfie Mack has been in hospital for months recovering from an accident. A new face on the ward is about as exciting as life gets for him right now, so when someone moves into the bed next to him he's eager to make friends. But it quickly becomes clear that seeing his neighbour's face won't happen any time soon.

Alice Gunnersley has been badly burned and can't even look at herself yet, let alone allow anyone else to see her. She keeps the curtain around her bed firmly closed, but it doesn't stop Alfie trying to get to know her. And gradually, as he slowly brings Alice out of her shell, might there even be potential for more? ___ Readers are falling in love with Before I Saw You- ***** 'One of the must-reads of 2021!
