Once upon a leap year is a gorgeous, high-concept romcom about finding love and daring to take a chance. After all, it’s all about timing. . .
29th February 2000. Lucy’s never met another leapling until she encounters Noah also spending his once-in-four-years birthday on a disappointing day trip to Calais. There’s a spark that Lucy is sure Noah must feel too, and their friends insist they have amazing chemistry, but they’re both with other people. It can never be more than platonic and that’s OK.
Over the next twenty years, they’re at each other’s side through all of life’s big moments – weddings, babies, new jobs, family illness – but Lucy can never shake the feeling that they were meant to meet…If Lucy is to find a love that’s rarer than a leap year, she’s going to have to take a leap of faith.
