When a terrible accident threatens to end their relationship, a husband and wife ultimately discover the true nature of love in this beautiful, poignant, debut novel.

You think you're the perfect couple. And then the unthinkable happens.

Kit and Alice are enjoying a luxurious weekend abroad when their car spins off a mountain road and into a desert valley. Their lives are changed in an instant. In the aftermath of the accident, their faith in each other is shattered. Suddenly it is as if they hardly know each other at all.

The Trouble with Alice is a love story told backwards - a touching, surprising novel about two people who have to fall apart in order to learn how to love...

Praise For The Trouble with Alice

“A wise, humorous and humane novel about the nature of real love.”

The Times

“A wise and compelling story from a bold, unflinching new writer.”

– Emma Craigie, Chocolate Cake with Hitler
