Tess and George are soul mates. They went to the same university. They both live in London. They have a wide circle of friends in common. But throughout their twenties, despite their friends’ best efforts, they never actually come face to face. Because of this, they’re stuck. They end up with partners who don’t understand their passions and ambitions. They’re both tied down by jobs that don’t suit them. Not being sure that they deserve more, they both settle for second best.

Finally, when George is living in New York with his wife and baby daughter, and Tess has bought a flat in London with the boyfriend she’s about to marry, they meet at a friend's thirtieth birthday party. But is it too late? Can they disentangle themselves from their former lives and grab hold of their one chance to be together?

This is a love story that teeters on the edge of disaster. It’s about whether it’s better to settle or to wait for your soul mate. Is there such a thing as The One you’re destined to be with? And what if there is but you just keep missing each other?
