What if your first love was your one and only chance at happiness? In our lives, some promises are easily forgotten, while others come to haunt us with tragic results. From the bestselling author of The Girl on the Page comes The Lessons, a compelling audiobook about love and betrayal.

1962. When teens Daisy and Harry meet, it feels so right they promise to love each other forever, but in 1960s England everything is stacked against them: class, education, expectations. When Daisy is sent by her parents to live with her glamorous, bohemian Aunt Jane, a novelist working on her second book, she is confronted by adult truths and suffers a loss of innocence that flings her far from the one good thing in her life, Harry. 1983. Jane Curtis, now a famous novelist, is at a prestigious book event in New York, being interviewed about her life and work, including a novel about the painful and disastrous coming of age of a young woman. But she won't answer the interviewer's probing questions. What is she trying to hide? Intriguing, striking and powerful, The Lessons tells a compelling story about literature, love and betrayal, about how far writers will go in plundering their lives for their art and about how much we’re prepared to forgive – if we forgive.

'A slick, sharp novel about books and relationships, drenched in delicious insider detail from the book industry. Impossible not to enjoy.' (on The Girl on the Page)
Matt Haig, author of How to Stop Time

'Fizzy, ferocious, and ice-pick sharp, packed with wit and heart - think The Devil Wears Prada by way of Bret Easton Ellis. Gulp it down. Or savor it slowly. Just read it.' (on The Girl on the Page)
A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
