Reminiscent of ONE DAY meets 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD, THAT PART WAS TRUE is a bittersweet story about falling in love and risking it all.
When Eve Petworth writes to Jackson Cooper to praise a scene in one of his books, they discover a mutual love of cookery and food.
As their letters criss-cross the ocean that lies between them, friendship and then romance blossoms despite Jackson's colourful love life and Eve's tense relationship with her soon-to-be-married daughter.
Little by little, Eve and Jack begin to believe that they may have a chance to change their lives and possibly get a second chance at happiness.
They just need to actually meet...A gorgeous, escapist read about food, friendship and falling in love from afar...
