About The Book
Still reeling from a break-up, Cora Hendricks has given up on ever finding love. For herself, that is. To pass the time while working the Aer Lingus check-in desk at Heathrow, Cora begins to play cupid with high-flying singles.
Using only her intuition, the internet, and glamorous flight attendant accomplice Nancy, Row 27 becomes Cora’s laboratory of love. Instead of being seated randomly, two unwitting passengers on each flight find themselves next to the person of their dreams – or not.
Cora swears Row 27 is just a bit of fun, but while she’s busy making sparks fly at cruising altitude, the love she’d given up on for herself just might have landed right in front of her…
About the Author
Eithne Shortall is an author, journalist and occasional broadcaster. Her debut novel, Love in Row 27, has been published in 13 languages. Grace After Henry (2018) was an international bestseller, won Best Page Turner at the UK’s Big Book Awards and was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards. Her third novel, Three Little Truths, was selected for BBC Radio Two’s prestigious book club and named the best popular fiction title of the year by the Daily Mail. It has just been published in North America.
Eithne is the chief arts writer with the Irish edition of the Sunday Times newspaper.
Eithne was born and grew up in Dublin, Ireland. She studied journalism at Dublin City University and spent four months living in West Virginia. She lived in Paris for a year in her early twenties and vaguely thought about writing. She went to London to write her first novel, Love in Row 27, which is set there. Her follow-up, Grace after Henry, is set in – and is partly a love letter to – Dublin, where she now lives. Three Little Truths is inspired by the Dublin cul-de-sac on which Eithne grew up – though her mother wishes she’d stop telling people this.
