Charlie and Pearl

Charlie and Pearl

Charlie is slightly chubby and the occasional reader of women’s lifestyle magazines, not that he’d ever admit that down at the pub with the guys. He lives with his mum in the same small coastal town where he was born and works in the local bookshop with a boss suffering from the early onslaught of dementia and who wears a pot on his head for a helmet, as he thinks the country is at war.

Pearl has fled to her grandmother’s beach house for some time out and to heal after the end of a relationship left her with a life altering revelation.

Their paths collide and Charlie falls instantly in love, although Pearl takes some convincing. She has a secret; one she knows will prevent them from living their happy ever after.  

Charlie and Pearl is a quirky love story in the tradition of One Day. It’s a story of  unconventional love; of finding that spare part you never knew you were missing, and of what happens when love is simply not enough.

“This is an incredible story. As long as you don’t mind getting kicked in the gut, shedding a few tears, and having your heart squeezed at the pain the characters go through, you’ll love this book. It’s simple, yet elegant. Painful, yet heartwarming. It is put simply, an incredible story told well.”
