Love, Love Me Do - Mark Haysom
An astonishing debut from Mark Haysom, Love, Love Me Do is set in 1963 - the year the Beatles first top the charts and the year Martin Luther King has a dream. It is utterly original, sweet and funny. Not one to pass by!
1963. Truman Bird moves his family from their Brighton home to a dilapidated caravan in the Ashdown Forest - then disappears. A charmer, a chancer, a liar - he's always got away with it, but now he only has one day to put things right... For Truman's wife, Christie, life has not turned out.
