For Fans of Andrea Levy, Small Island and Sally Rooney, Normal People: The Moment I found you is a sweeping, uplifting and inspirational story of how a special childhood friendship would withstand adversity and time.
Samantha is convinced her father is still alive and not dead as her mother proclaimed. Finding him will be difficult as she has no idea who he is. At age ten, she meets a special boy, Darren. During all the abuse, he is there for her. Unexpectedly, she finds out she’ll have to face it all on her own when Darren leaves Wolverhampton and moves to London.
Samantha is forced to move out, but a loving grandmother will come in to pick up where Darren left off. But little do they know their paths are destined to cross again, and this special friendship will change their future.
With irresistible joy and grace, Garvin Matthews writes of two people brought together through unlikely circumstances, and ask the question whether love could overcome anything. Humming with Beauty and Caribbean humour, Drama and Triumph, this is a powerful debut from a new voice in British and Caribbean Fiction.
