Half the World Away
by
Rebecca Banks

About the book...
Divorced and keeping a heart-breaking secret, Abbie Potter is sleep-walking through her life as a publicist at a London football club. She seems to spend more time covering their scandals than celebrating their wins, and has had enough. Though she’s already prepared for a fresh start, some shocking news pushes her to take an opportunity even further from home - in Salt Lake City.

The first morning of her new life, Abbie bumps into Kyle Miller. He’s persistent, and Abbie’s more than intrigued by him. Everything else seems to fit into place too: she has a fulfilling job, is on a journey of self-rediscovery, and has revived her love of music thanks to a new-found friendship.

She can’t risk losing what she’s built for herself, but how can she stop it from slipping through her fingers without shattering the fa├žade she hides behind?

~~~   EXCERPT   ~~~

Divorced and keeping a heart-breaking secret, Abbie Potter is sleep-walking through her life as a publicist at a London football club. She seems to spend more time covering their scandals than celebrating their wins, and has had enough. Though she’s already prepared for a fresh start, some shocking news pushes her to take an opportunity even further from home - in Salt Lake City. 

‘So, you’ve actually done it? Without a job to go to?’ Violet was incredulous when Abbie called her that evening to tell her she had handed in her resignation to Dave.
‘Yep, I couldn’t bear it anymore. What John said to me today was the last straw. Dave was amazing, he totally understood. He said he would be sad to see me go, but he’s happy for me to see out my notice, which gives me a month to find something.’
‘Abs, I’m so happy for you. You’ve got the fire back in your belly.’
‘It definitely feels like I’ve taken a step towards something,’ she said, smiling as she talked to her friend. ‘I’m chatting to Michael about what he’s got available so hopefully things will get sorted pretty quickly. Things are looking up, Violet. It already feels like a weight’s been lifted.’
‘That’s amazing.’
Something had shifted in Violet’s voice, which unsettled Abbie. She thought Violet would be delighted for her, but her reaction had turned flat and Abbie told her as much.
‘Um, I don’t know how to say it. It’s shitty timing, and I was going to come over later, but…’
‘Spit it out, Vi. What’s going on?’
Her friend paused, hemmed and hawed, and then suddenly blurted it out.
‘Josh and his wife are having a baby.’
