Grey, Red, Blue... Gone focusses on the relationship between a middle-aged American man and a younger British woman. Taking readers to Chicago, New York City, Seattle, London, Yorkshire, Cumbria and a Greek fishing village, each location contributes something unique to their four-year-long relationship, sometimes bringing them together, sometimes breaking them apart. Underlying the lure and excitement of a transatlantic romance is the unsettled and disillusioning nature of the domestic politics of both nations.
This novel explores the effects of indecisiveness and procrastination on personal desire and professional aspiration. As the characters journey across both time and ocean, will they grasp their full potential, or let their opportunities slip away – never to return?

I loved this book, “Grey, Red, Blue, Gone”… It’s the story of two people meeting, discovering romance and navigating their future. It’s about a cross-continental relationship throughout which is interwoven thoughtful commentary on friendship, politics, culture, travel and more. The author describes the music, food and drink that makes you feel like you’re present in the story, listening to and tasting everything. This book made me smile, laugh, feel deep sadness and most importantly, think about life and how important it is to live well, regardless of circumstances.
