'A warm, sweet love story, and a thought-provoking examination of the British slave trade and its legacy' MARIAN KEYES**A STYLIST UNMISSABLE BOOK FOR 2024**They already share a surname. But will they share a future?When Layla and Andy first meet, they can't believe they have the same surname. It feels like fate, almost too romantic to be true.

But Sera, Layla's best friend, has her doubts about Andy. As the pair fall deeper and deeper in love, Sera becomes more and more vocal about Layla settling down with a white boy. And then, only a few weeks before their wedding, Layla makes a devastating discovery about their shared name.

What seemed like a fairy-tale romance is rapidly derailed. In part propelled by Sera's rising anger, Layla begins to uncover parts of her history and identity that she had never imagined -- or, perhaps, had simply learnt to ignore. And now, she faces an impossible choice, between past and future, friendship and marriage, the personal and the political.
