Product Description

"An incredible romance and a love story that will test the capacity of your heart."―Dandelions Inspired Book Blog

On the surface, Sophie led the perfect family life―until she learns she's been living a lie when her marriage comes to a sudden end.

With all the questions hanging unanswered, she must leave for a two-week work assignment in London. As she juggles her emotions at the airport terminal, Matt observes her, intrigued. When the opportunity to meet her again presents itself, the charming and enigmatic doctor doesn't shy away and pursues her with everything he has.

Heartbroken and confused, Sophie lets herself dive into an intense affair, a relationship she believes is fated to end as soon as the moment for them to part ways arrives. After all, Matt is just too good to be true and she's learned her lesson: no one is as they seem. What if behind his determination, he carries secrets that might break her, even more?

But when the unexpected happens and their feelings are put to the ultimate test, will Matt be ready to let her go? Will his hidden story drive them apart or bring them closer together?

"Poignant and soul-touching, this book is the one of those few that make me feel a vortex of elemental emotions while reading." Veronica Thatcher, author of A Way Back Into Love

"Sophie's journey moved me in a way I can't begin to express. This romance is breathtakingly realistic and encompasses the full gamut of human emotions." Darly Jamison, author of Strawberry Wine

For women's fiction fans, an honest and thought-provoking story about life-defining moments, unexpected love and second chances.

About the Author

Ana is a writer of romance and women's fiction. After spending almost half of her life studying literature, it wasn't until recently that she'd try her hand at fiction writing herself. It turns out she fell in love with it, and now she spends most of her free time creating stories and bringing their characters to life. She's fascinated by people's behaviour, by what's underneath the surface, their inner workings, views, quirks, weirdnesses and just about everything else that is part of our human nature. Realistic settings and situations, characters with features and conflicts readers will relate to, and plots that keep you all warm and fuzzy inside and wondering what will happen next are some of the most significant traits of her books. Silent Signs is her debut novel. She's currently working on her second project, Free Falling, a contemporary romance series. By day, Ana is a professor of intercultural communication. She lives in sunny Southern Europe with her husband, her extraordinary twins and two frisky rescue dogs. You can learn more about Ana by visiting her website at
