Sofia Due lives in London where she was born, although her roots on her father's side are East European. She studied Modern Languages and then trained as a lawyer. Much of her work is with refugees and victims of human trafficking. 'Ed & Lily' is her debut novel and draws partly on these experiences.
Ed & Lily have a problem. It’s the day before Christmas Eve and the relationship everyone believed was rock solid is in trouble. It’s not just the past getting in the way, it’s the present too.
They’ve got thirty-six hours before they fly to Iceland for a snowy Christmas break. Can they resolve their differences or will their plane leave London without them?
A story about love, loss and chasing your dreams.
Sofia Due was born and raised in London where she still resides today. Her first degree was in Modern Languages but she later converted to law and re-qualified as a solicitor. She is now a director of a large legal aid firm and specialises in civil liberties and human rights work, particularly for asylum-seekers and victims of human trafficking. Ed & Lily is her debut novel and is partially inspired by her experiences in and out of work.
A fresh start in a new place. But are the past and the present about to collide?
Gennie moves back to Cornwall in search of a fresh start. Working for Marion’s children’s charity seems perfect. Tucked away in the countryside, close to an artists’ community, it’s a place for Gennie and her daughter, Alice, to rebuild their lives in peace and quiet – until ex-soldier Jack comes along with the same idea in mind, a face from the past, forcing Gennie to confront things she would rather forget and igniting fears of another turbulent relationship.
Involving herself with Jack and his problems is the last thing she needs, not now she’s made new friends and opportunities are opening up again, but can either find happiness and a new direction without the other?
Sofia Due lives and works in London but spends much of her time in North Cornwall, which inspired the setting for this book.
