Nayelli is a college student with a restless soul, excited at the prospect of adventure and self-discovery during her first ever trip overseas. Nayelli is to spend the Christmas holidays visiting her friend Olivia who is studying in London, but instead finds herself alone in a strange city. It is in the midst of the cobblestone streets of the British capital that Nayelli's path intertwines with that of James, a charismatic Londoner with a captivating charm.
James is a budding actor and musician who naturally exudes talent and ambition, but at times has a slight sadness in his eyes-an emotional unavailability that James refuses to admit even exists. Comfortable behind his shield of casual encounters and fleeting connections, James is both shocked and confused when he finds himself not as detached to Nayelli as he should be-especially since she lives thousands of miles away.
Will Nayelli and James be able to get out of their own heads and lead with their hearts, or will it all come crashing down in heartache and unfulfilled dreams?
Meikko Sheriee's captivating new novel explores the pursuit of passion, the unpredictable tides of the heart, and the universal quest for belonging. It reminds us that sometimes unexpected encounters make for the greatest lessons in the growth of one's own heart.
