We are beyond thrilled for Abbie Greaves, whose poignant new novel Anywhere for You is published today in US and Canadian hardback (HarperCollins / William Morrow). A beautiful love story about one woman’s decade-long search to find the love of her life who disappeared without a trace, this is one that readers won’t want to miss.
Abbie Greaves’ heartwarming second novel will be published in the UK as The Ends of the Earth by Penguin Random House / Cornerstone, after the critical success of her debut novel The Silent Treatment, which was chosen for the BBC Radio 2 Book Club and nominated for a Romantic Novel Award.
In the run up to publication, Anywhere for You was featured in PopSugar’s roundup of April’s ‘12 Greatest New Love Stories‘, as well as Her magazine’s ‘books that we can’t wait to curl up with in 2021‘. US readers were also given the exciting chance to win hardcover copies of Anywhere for You in this Book Club Sweepstakes, and the novel was publicised on Twitter with this stunning visual trailer:

We can’t wait to introduce readers to Mary O’Connor…
The straphangers of Ealing Broadway station are familiar with Mary O’Connor, the woman who appears every day to watch the droves of busy commuters. But Mary never asks anything from anyone. She only holds out a sign bearing a heartrending message: Come Home Jim.
While others pass her by without a thought, Alice, a junior reporter at the Ealing Bugle, asks Mary to tell her story. Many years ago, Mary met the charming and romantic Jim Whitnell. She was certain she’d found her other half, until one day he vanished without any explanation. But Mary believes that Jim isn’t a cad, that he truly loved her and will return–especially because she’s recently received grainy phone calls from him saying he misses her.
Touched but also suspicious, Alice quietly begins her own investigation into Jim’s disappearance, unraveling a decade-long story filled with desire, heartbreak, and hope. With Greaves’s signature warmth and charm, Anywhere for You is a romantic and immensely moving novel about the enduring power of love and finding happiness in unexpected places.
A huge congratulations on this very special day, Abbie. And if you haven’t purchased a copy for yourself yet, you can order one here.
