Sareeta Domingo’s debut novel, The Nearness of You, came out in 2016. It is an impressive novel, its central romantic storyline drawing on a variety of themes including family, suicide and friendship.
Since the moment they met, Ryan and Taylor have shared an unspoken bond. Taylor’s drawn to Ryan more strongly than she thought possible and for some reason only he seems able to lift her out of the darkness in her past.
But Ryan is with Marcy – her best friend.
Marcy stood by Taylor when everything else had fallen apart, and Taylor refuses to risk their friendship now. Somehow she needs to resist what she’s feeling. Yet, when Marcy leaves for a few weeks just as Ryan moves in to their shared flat, the tension grows to unbearable proportions. As the line between right and wrong becomes blurred, Taylor will have to decide whether she can – or should – turn away from what might be the love of her life.
Evocative, moving and heartrendingly romantic, this is a story about real life, true love and the power of friendship
Born in Camberwell, South East London, and forging a career in the publishing industry, Sareeta Domingo is an exciting new author and we are proud to have her as our inaugural author for the book club.
