Book Cover of Anywhere for You by Abbie Greaves

Two women’s lives collide at Ealing Broadway Station in London in this lighthearted novel that explores themes of love, loss, abandonment, and mental health. Mary has stood vigil every day at 6 PM for 7 years, holding a sign that says COME HOME JIM. One evening, Alice, a journalist in her 20s, witnesses Mary losing her temper in a crowded line up at the station, and she becomes curious. Who is Jim? Where is he? Why does Mary think this could bring him back? It turns out that Alice’s father disappeared when she was 12, and that connection, and her journalist’s curiosity, lead her to dig into Mary’s story. Lives are changed, relationships deepen, and some closure is found. A fun read.
