“What’s in a name?
Devastated after losing her job, eternal pragmatist Alice leaves London for a new start in Devon. It’s there that she meets Danny.
Then she meets another Danny.
And then she meets Daniel – Danny to his friends…
In fact, there seems to be a Danny at every turn! Her neighbour’s a Danny; there’s little baby Danny; there’s a vicar, a windsurfer, even a dog called Danny! And whether it’s laughter, comfort, a flutter of romance or a walk along the beach, they each bring something special to Alice’s new life.
You might say it’s a coincidence. Alice certainly would… at first! But when she suddenly risks losing not just one Danny, but all of them, she begins to wonder: might there be more in a name than she ever guessed?”
“When Alice met Danny” is a witty and charming read. I thought the “Danny’s” at every turn was like a Woody Allen film and thoroughly delightful. It really was a refreshing novel.
T.A. Williams creates a stunning book with wonderful characters and captures Alice’s persona perfectly. I couldn’t believe that T.A. Williams was man- this book is written like a woman wrote it.
“When Alice met Danny” is the perfect summer read. Beautifully written with a touch of humour. It is one book I plan to read over and over. I highly recommend.
