An unforgettable book from Portugal's bestselling author that promises to change how we read about love

The restaurant is crowded and noisy. The man sits by the window, watching the grey sky, bored, as he is every Monday morning. Suddenly he turns and she's there, standing in front of him. Years have passed since he last saw her, since the day he left, without an explanation, without a reason. Only now does he realise he never stopped loving her, even for a second.

Pedro Chagas Freitas takes the reader on a journey to discover the truth about love; the kind of love that touches, envelops and thrills you, that conceals and reveals, that wounds and heals, that seizes you and sets you free.

‘Pedro Chagas Freitas is the new literary phenomenon in Portugal.’

– TV 7 Dias

The Day I Found You allows readers to breathe in the magic of a love that ends but is never extinguished.’
