A story of love and lost directions

Violet North is wonderfully inconvenient. Abandoned by her family and lost in an imagined world of moors and adventure, her life changes in the space of just 37 words exchanged with a stranger at her front door.

Decades later, Daniel Bearing has inherited his father's multi-million pound business, and is utterly lost. He has no idea who he is or where his life is headed.

When Violet’s granddaughter’s marriage falls apart, Tilly, always adept with numbers, compiles a detailed statistical report to pinpoint why. But the Compatibility Index Tilly creates has unforeseen consequences for everyone in her world.

Tilly and Daniel share a secret too. 10.37am, April 22nd.
Soon, a complex web of secrets and lies is exposed and an adventure begins with a blue typewriter…

‘Totally addictive’ – Joe Heap

About the author

Jules Preston was born in London, and has had lots of jobs. Some good. Some bad. The best was cutting up national newspapers with a huge pair of scissors. He now lives in Devon, surrounded by piles of paper held together with bulldog clips. One day they might get turned into books too. Hopefully.

    I had forgotten the reason I prefer male authors, now I know. This the extremely annoying woman who sits next to you on the bus, droning on about all and nothing, never stopping long enough for you to respond, every word spoken for effect, all delivered in an arty-farty way. She will probably have her sun glasses tucked in the top of her hair and tell you that she can’t wait to chill out with a glass of Chardonnay. I erased this from my iPad half way through, the effect of getting off the bus several stops early, preferring to walk the rest of the way in blessed silence. Thank goodness the fare was only 99p.
  • Original , excellent, delicately moving

    I downloaded this book at 7pm. I stayed up until 1am to finish it. It’s beautifully written without being pretentious. The story is moving but told with subtlety. It’s definitely a book I’ll remember.
