Who We Were Before by Leah Mercer

Zoe and Edward are heading for divorce.  Their life was destroyed when their toddler was killed two years previously.  They are in Paris for a short break but neither of them want to be there or with each other.  Arriving at the station, they get split up and cannot find each other.  Both assume the other one has dumped the other in a cruel way.

And so we get both sides of what they are doing in Paris and both sides of how they met, fell in love and had a child together.  This is a weaving story of love and loss.

This is not the happiest of stories, but is well written and very enjoyable.
