What if you’ve already crossed paths with the love of your life?

Cora and Jacob live in London, at opposite ends of the Central Line.

Their paths have crossed thousands of times without them knowing.

When a chance encounter on the underground brings them together, it seems they’re destined to fall in love.

But although they live in the same city, their lives are worlds apart. Jacob’s life in uncluttered, whereas Cora’s is full of complications. And as events begin to divide them, they start to wonder, are they meant to be together, or were they ever meant to meet?
