Five Days Apart

(2010)
A novel by

 
Bestselling Irish author Chris Binchy makes his American debut with a wonderfully charming and bittersweet story of friendship, love, and second chances.

When the bright but tongue-tied David sees the magnetic Camille at a party, he plays it safe, asking his smooth and charming best friend, Alex, to make the introduction. But even though David was the one to notice Camille, it's the ever-confident Alex who makes the first move on her. As David watches his best friend walk away with the girl of his dreams, he becomes painfully aware of just what he has lost through his hesitant, overcautious approach to life.

Shedding his disappointment, David leaves home in search of a new beginning. But neither distance nor time can erase the memory of Camille. Buoyed by his newfound self-assurance and a fresh perspective, David is ready to try again. He will face the would-be love of his life and act on his feelings, whatever the cost to his friendship with Alex.

What happens when love gets in the way of lifelong friendship? How far will a good guy go to win the love of his life? In the tradition of Nick Hornby, Roddy Doyle, and Michael Chabon, Chris Binchy delivers an addictive tale of looking back and looking forward. This funny and wise story interweaves the suspense of unforeseeable futures, unknowable circumstances, and irreversible mistakes; the misfortunes of bad timing; and the power of love.
