Long walks on the beach and romantic seaside proposals are a girl’s dream come true…except for Sarah. She gives a whole new meaning to summer break when she runs out on her overzealous boyfriend, leaving her both single and homeless. With her life now in disarray as she attempts to move past her vindictive ex, Sarah finds her footing with help from a group of struggling musicians and an unlikely friendship with a retired professor, Gemma.
Zach is serious about making a go of it as a professional musician and has a determination and drive that borders on obsessive. Through late night talks with his new, unexpected roommate he discovers a kindred spirit in the bookish Sarah. Giving each other permission to be who they are, Zach and Sarah are emboldened to pursue their dreams and perhaps something more.
Learn about the early days of Zach and Sarah (from How to be Alive) and how they became the couple that everyone loves.
