The Life We Almost Had by Amelia Henley @MsAmeliaHenley @HQstories #TheLifeWeAlmostHad #BookReview


This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.

Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.

Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow, and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences.
Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide and time is running out…

A beautiful and emotional love story that asks, how far would you go for a second chance at first love? Perfect for fans of The Man Who Didn’t Call and Miss You.

The Life We Almost Had by Amelia Henley was published in paperback by HQ on 3 September 2020. My thanks to the publisher who sent my copy for review

This review was originally published in the Daily Express

Anna and Adam met on holiday in Spain seven years ago. They were both nursing a broken heart and neither of them were looking for love. But when Adam came to Anna’s rescue, they both realised that they couldn’t fight their attraction. They believed they would be together forever and that they were meant for one another. Seven years later, Anna thinks their relationship is over. They return to Spain, where they met, for a make-or-break holiday and Anna is about to drop a bombshell on Adam when a horrific accident changes everything.

The novel then takes an unexpected turn into the realms of science fiction and, though its developments may seem far-fetched, in Henley’s hands, they become plausible. Moreover, in an afterword, Henley explains that the novel’s events are based on current scientific research.

The result is a powerful, emotive and refreshingly unusual read, its characters leaping from the pages with their emotions laid bare. 

Amelia Henley is a hopeless romantic who has a penchant for exploring the intricacies of
relationships through writing heart-breaking, high-concept love stories.

Amelia also writes psychological thrillers under her real name, Louise Jensen. As Louise Jensen she has sold over a million copies of her global number one bestsellers. Her stories have been translated into twenty-five languages and optioned for TV as well as featuring on the USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestsellers list. Louise’s books have been nominated for multiple awards.

‘The Life We Almost Had’ is the first story she’s written as Amelia Henley and it's out now.
