A tragic love story spanning three decades, The Bench is Saskia Sarginson’s most accomplished and heart-rending novel to date. For fans of One Day and A Star is Born.

‘We should have a plaque too,’ he says. ‘What would it say?’

I tilt my head. ‘For Cat and Sam, who found each other and lost each other and found each other again,’ I suggest.

It begins at the end.

It begins on a bench, on a heath, where a woman waits for a man.

Ten years ago, they made a pact:

On this bench, on this day, they will end a love affair that’s spanned three decades, or start again.

They should never have met. They should never have fallen in love.

But they did, until a lie separated them for a lifetime.

Can they fix the mistake, forgive the lie, erase the years in-between?

Can what was lost ever truly be found?
