It was love at first sight. Fifty years on, disclosure means disaster.

One handstand.

That’s all it took.

And Lucy Pitcher spun William Shearwater’s world upside down.

Fifty years on, ‘Shears’ is a squeaky-clean Anglican chaplain, nursing memories of a lost and secret love. He has never met English teacher Sophie Daggert, recently bereaved and on a quest to trace her natural parents. But through a mesmerising series of twists and turns, Sophie and Shears are brought together in a shocking journey of self-discovery – with 1967’s Summer of Love at the heart of it all.

‘Witty, tragic and emotional. If there’s a better-observed comic novel about the 1960s, I’ll eat my kaftan.’
Cindy Kent MBE, (ex-The Settlers)

‘Goddard’s knowledge of popular culture is extraordinary, and the way he weaves it into a believable range of characters makes this book utterly compelling. A splendid read is guaranteed for all.’
Don Maclean, former presenter of BBC TV’s Crackerjack!
