The Turning Point

A gripping love story, keep the tissues close...
"If you cried at Jojo Moyes' Me Before You, get your hankies ready" – Booklist (starred review) "Rich, romantic, beautifully drawn and utterly compelling" Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author A poignant read with a heartbreaking twist for all fans of Me Before You and The Secret Wife. Two single parents, Scott and Frankie, meet by chance. Their homes are thousands of miles apart: Frankie lives somewhat chaotically with her children on the shoreline of North Norfolk, while Scott's life is in the mountains of British Columbia. Distance divides them – but it seems that a million little things connect them. A spark ignites, one so strong that it dares them to take a risk. But fate has one more trick in store... There are some truths about life and family we only learn when we grow up. There are some we never thought we'd have to.

    Starred review from March 21, 2016
    North’s outstanding contemporary love story eschews a traditional happily-ever-after ending, but is no less romantic for that. From the moment Scott Emerson meets Frankie Shaw, their personalities take on the instantly recognizable luster of real-life love, and readers will immediately be reminded of the great loves in their own lives. Both characters are divorced single parents— Scott has an adult daughter, Frankie has two tweens—and are staring down early middle age. They are each in London on business when their eyes meet and their hearts engage. Despite the cliché of meeting in a hotel lobby, exchanging pleasantries, and progressing to drinks and dinner, their encounter oozes nothing but sincere charm and self-effacing humor. But even while they bask in two blissful days together, they wonder whether being rooted on separate continents will doom the future of their love. Her rural England home is so far from his in British Columbia, and so many things can go wrong. Clearly North loves her characters as much as they love each other, and they’re so wistfully guileless that readers will find it impossible to put down their five-hanky story until the last page is turned.
