The funny, uplifting novel from the Sunday Times and multi-million-copy bestsellerFern has the voice of an angel but as an underpaid barmaid and pub singer, she's going nowhere fast.

Then she enters the TV talent show Fame Game and this could be her big break.

But then, things are never that simple. Evan David's exquisite tones have enthralled opera buffs throughout the world.

Everyone around him panders to his every need but what he really needs now is a break - from everything. Two worlds collide when Fern becomes Evan's assistant and neither is prepared for the dramatic effect they have on each other.
