The note

By Zoe Folbigg

Based on a true story of love at first sight. 

Maya Flowers commutes by train, every day, to her city job in the fashion industry. One day a new commuter board. Maya is instantly smitten by the man she refers to as ‘train man.’ 

Maya daydreams about the life she could have with ‘train man’ if only she could pluck up enough courage to speak to him. Eventually she passes a note to him, inviting him for a drink, and is on pins all day awaiting his reply. Sadly, he lets her gently down, admitting he already has a girlfriend. 

 This life affirming story is all about opportunities missed and taking chances which could alter your life positively. It’s an uplifting book, none of us know how a chance encounter can change us if only we take the risk.  

It is a light hearted, easy summer read which should appeal to anyone’s inner ‘romantic’. 

It’s a girl meets boy story but does she get her man?
