Radio 2 Book Club: Kate Eberlen

Author Kate Eberlen joins Simon to discuss her new novel Miss You. Plus some listener reviewers.

The current Radio 2 Book Club choice is Miss You by Kate Eberlen, who joins Simon to talk about the novel and her writing.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life is the motto on a plate in the kitchen at home, and Tess can't get it out of her head, even though she's in Florence for a final, idyllic holiday before university. Her life is about to change forever - but not in the way she expects.

Gus and his parents are also on holiday in Florence. Their lives have already changed suddenly and dramatically. Gus tries to be a dutiful son, but longs to escape and discover what sort of person he is going to be.

For one day, the paths of an eighteen-year-old girl and boy criss-cross before they each return to England.

Over the course of the next sixteen years, life and love will offer them very different challenges. Separated by distance and fate, there's no way the two of them are ever going to meet each other properly... or is there?
