If only he’d told her is the story of Emma, who at the age of 32, loses her boyfriend to cancer. Their relationship before his death, though, was difficult, and Emma is left with one important unanswered question – did he really love her?
Beginning at the funeral, the story moves forwards in time as she comes to terms with her loss, and backwards in time as she untangles a complex relationship overshadowed by a terminal illness. Tested to breaking point, they demonstrate the courage and kindness they have for each other, but also the courage and kindness that they both need. Finally, recognizing a tenderness in him, she finds the strength she needs to move forward.
This is a story of the strength and tenderness in us all, but the need for strength and tenderness too.
