I had to read it in one sitting. I loved it! Really heart-warming and joyful, but also so poignant. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It's such a beautifully authentically told story with vivid characters and you will miss them when you reach the end. * LORRAINE KELLY *
'Albert is such an endearing character - flawed, funny and awkward, but completely relatable. I wanted to give him a good shake and then a huge hug. This is a wonderfully warm story that completely drew me in' * RUTH HOGAN *
Prepare to fall in love with Albert Entwistle! Touching and tender. * S. J. WATSON *
A total triumph . . . Romantic and heartbreaking and uplifting all at once * LAURA KAY *
Albert is delightful and charming, and the book is too. * JONATHAN HARVEY *
A bright, clear, sharply intelligent writer * JENNY COLGAN *
Wonderful. Written with such a good heart, filled with joy and strength and optimism. Like the best fiction, it's real; Albert's fears, the sour legacy of his parents, his colleagues' kindness, George flourishing from boy to man . . . It's inventive and fun but, most importantly, true. * RUSSELL T. DAVIES *
This rollicking love story entrapped me, chapter by chapter. True in its detail and its scope, it is amusing yet heart-breaking. It will encourage tentative young gay people and reassure their parents. Its passionate declaration? That it's never too late to enjoy being yourself. * IAN McKELLEN *
Beautiful . . . You will weep and yet have your heart filled with joy * ARLENE PHILLIPS *
Tender, witty, uplifting . . . I love it! * KATE EBERLEN *
'What a beautiful, wonderful, life-affirming treat of a book. I challenge you not to fall in love with Albert from the very start! * CHARLIE CONDOU *
'Wonderful . . . A love story that will have every reader cheering on Albert from the sidelines. An utter treat' * KATE MOSSE *
'Brilliant . . . [I] recommend to all!' * MATT LUCAS *
Albert is the most delicious character and you'll be with him every step of the way as he begins to live the life he always should have. * Sun *
It'll put a smile on everyone's face. * Michael Ball, Radio 2 *
'A charming adventure with love at its heart.' * My Weekly *

'A life affirming story of lost love and the reality of being gay in the Seventies.'

* That's Life *
'A unique and moving story.' * Candis *
