A Scrapbook For Summer
by Alan Flitcroft

Sixteen thousand people gather in the shadows of Battersea Power Station for the Shine Walk, a marathon trek around London in aid of Cancer Research. Among them is Ben, taking the place of his free-spirited girlfriend, Summer, who has recently lost her battle with cancer. Haunted by guilt, the Shine Walk is one last thing he must do for her. But what starts out as a wretched evening for Ben develops into a journey of redemption after he meets the seemingly unremarkable Annie.

When Ben first met Summer, she inspired him to start his scrapbook of tales from London’s past. Now, as he walks, Ben recounts extracts from his scrapbook and, encouraged by Annie, slowly finds the courage to tell the story of his relationship with Summer – a relationship inextricably linked to locations they pass, including Battersea Park and its little, brown dog statue, and the Natural History Museum, home of the cursed Deadly Purple Sapphire. But it is only when they reach Tower Bridge that Ben finally reveals Summer’s deepest secrets – secrets that drove Ben and Summer apart.

A Scrapbook for Summer is a beautifully told tale of love and loss interwoven with wonderful stories from London’s rich history – a truly original book that will capture both your head and your heart in equal measure.

Inspired by novels such as One Day by David Nichols and The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, A Scrapbook for Summer will appeal to fans of romance and historical fiction alike.
