Can you fall in love with someone you've never met, never even spoken to – someone who is light years away? Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on a mission to establish a second home for humanity. Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth – with a single passenger on board.

A boy called J. Their only communication is via email – and due to the distance between them, their messages take months to transmit. And yet Romy finds herself falling in love. But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean? Sometimes, there's something worse than being alone...


Set upon the spaceship Infinity, destined to inhabit a new planet (Earth II), Romy is travelling alone after her parents and all of the astronauts sleeping in their pods awaiting re-awaking died.

Romy is told that another spaceship, The Eternity, has launched. With new technology, The Eternity is due to rendezvous with her in 12 months. J is in charge of The Eternity, and they begin emailing each other, and Romy starts romanticising what will happen when he arrives. Only it doesn’t work out as planned. At all...

I can’t tell you anymore, but the twists and turns that take place will keep you enthralled with each new chapter.

This is a great read that is part romance, part science, and a lot of suspense and intrigue. It has a wonderful plot, and some amazing characters and character twists. Read it, you will love it!

Ideal for all readers 13 and older, but like a lot of cover art, this cover may restrict it’s appeal to female readers.
