September book pick: The man who didn’t call by Rosie Walsh

How is it September already? Time is flying this year with summer feeling like a somewhat distant memory now (although I know we’re all praying we get to keep this warm weather in the UK for a little bit longer). I’ve not been well over the last couple of weeks which has meant lots of rest and recovery for me so I did this in the only way I know how… by reading lots! Given I’ve caught up on a bit of reading I have an excellent recommendation for you this month, The man who didn’t call by Rosie Walsh.

September’s book pick

This months book pick is The man who didn’t call by Rosie Walsh, the first novel she’s written under her name and it’s a winner! I saw this book being advertised around the London Underground a few months ago and made a note on my phone to add this to my reading list as it sounded intriguing and I’m so happy that I did.

This book is dedicated to anyone who has found themselves floored by the absence of a telephone call. Especially those who didn’t imagine they’d care.

I’m sure we can all relate. Sat hovering over the phone waiting for that text or call that doesn’t come and wondering why. Also known as ghosting in the modern dating world. Or perhaps you’ve been one of the lucky ones who hasn’t had to go through that. Either way, when you’re expecting to hear from someone or see them and that doesn’t happen it can send your brain into all sorts of overload and this is the premise of the book, but there’s much more to this story than you first think.

The man who didn’t call

When Sarah and Eddie first meet each other it is a complete whirlwind romance. They end up spending seven amazing days together and fall in love, and it’s clear that they think they’re a perfect match. So when Eddie leaves for a holiday he booked months ago and promises to call from the airport, but doesn’t, Sarah starts to worry and question everything.

Her friends tell her to forget him but she can’t give up that easily. Convinced there’s a reason behind his silence she tries to work it out. But when she discovers that there is a reason and it’s the one thing they didn’t share, she’s lost for words.

This story will break your heart and put it back together


I loved reading this book, so much so that I finished it within 2 days. I was hooked the whole way through and routing for Sarah to figure out what went wrong. I’m excited to be sharing my book recommendations with you again as we move into autumn so if you want to read along and leave your thoughts, please do! I’d love to hear from you.
