From the author of Miss You comes Kate Eberlen's impossibly romantic second novel.

One person is all it takes to change a lifetime . . . But how will you know if they’re the one?

Letty and Alf are the only English speakers at an Italian class in Rome, where they discover the language that really connects them is dance: Letty’s first love was ballet, while Alf was a junior ballroom champion. They come from different worlds, until the moment they waltz around the Piazza Navona, and everything changes.

But one moment can’t change the past, and it’s clear that Alf and Letty still have their secrets. What caused them to leave their lives behind in England? And who, or what, are they running from? As their relationship deepens, it becomes harder and harder to tell the truth...

When the unthinkable happens, Letty returns to London and Alf to Blackpool. Will they spend their lives apart, or discover a future together?

Absolutely just what you need right now. Kate Eberlen is a wonderful storyteller and as for the Rome setting . . . Simply heaven

While we’re all stuck at home, we need to be able to live and love vicariously so Only You, with its romantic Rome setting is just the thing for some literary escapism

Sarra Manning, Red magazine

I read it in a single day, savouring every moment but also breathless with wanting to know how it would end. And the clever twists! I didn’t see a single one coming. And the ending itself – I could have danced. I certainly cried. Just wonderful
