From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.

A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.A symphony of love.A symphony of them.

Standalone Mature YA/ New Adult Novel. Suitable for ages 15 and up.

Tillie Cole is a must read author for me, I love everything she does and the versatility in her craft is quite simply astounding, however, this book was on a whole new level.

A Wish For Us was an emotional and sensory overload treat. A story awash with colour and song, creating a deep and personal read with in-depth characterisation based on personal loss, guilt, love and everything inbetween. From start to finish, ‘A Wish For Us’ is the perfect literary symphony that melds to your book loving beating heart and refuses to let up until the final chord. Even an hour later, I can’t get Cromwell and Bonnie out of my mind. Their journey is, at times, beautiful… and arduous.

Love has the power to conquer all, but at a cost…one neither could ever have anticipated, which is what also made this book a tear-jerker of epic proportions.

A lost and heartbroken English boy finds acceptance and solace in the arms of a sweet American girl who shows him the real meaning of soul shattering acceptance, bringing colour, music and irrevocable love into his life, only for time to be working against them.

A Wish For Us is perfect in every way; beautifully written, emotionally charged with a deep poignancy as it focuses on some more serious subject matters offering impact and a sense of realism.

If you pick up any book this summer, ‘A Wish For Us’ is it!
