From the Editor

I didn’t want to ugly cry at my desk. No one does, right? But as I read a pivotal scene in The First Word, I was overcome. Don’t get me wrong—while reading this stellar debut, I also swooned and grinned and fell in love with single dad Rhys. His attraction to his son’s occupational therapist, Andie Tilly, is no secret. But the masterful way that author Isley Robson portrays their budding romance is both heartbreaking and uplifting.

The First Word explores relationships—both familial and romantic—going inside, outside, through, and above and beyond. Andie’s past is painful, and we see clearly how her secret guilt drives so much of who she is. Rhys is both perfect and deeply flawed, making him accessible and appealing as only the best book boyfriends can be. These two damaged people come together, and if soul mates exist, they are it.

Now, I won’t say another word about this book. From the first word to those three little words, this novel speaks for itself.

- Maria Gomez, Editor


Editorial Reviews

Review

“Lovely writing and a sweet romance make for a promising debut.” Kirkus Reviews

“The portrayal of several non-neurotypical main characters makes for an interesting, timely, and sensitive read. Rhys’s point of view is especially endearing, as an adult who has struggled with undiagnosed autism-spectrum symptoms. His empathy for his son and his own young self is moving. Andie has demons of her own, and working so closely with Will brings them to the surface…There is a ton of heart in this romance, and plenty to enjoy.” —RT Book Reviews
