A tender, heartbreaking story of one couple’s relationship and secrets, The Man I Thought You Were by Leah Mercer is published today by Lake Union. Leah now has over a thousand 5* reviews for her previous novel Who We Were Before an astonishing figure. The book was also a No.3 digital bestseller on Amazon.com and is still standing strong in the top 10 of its Amazon categories.


The Man I Thought You Were is another stunningly written story, centred around Anna and Mark, a couple like any other – until he says he’s leaving her. Anna is left reeling, believing the life they’d built together—and the bright future they’d imagined—counted for everything.


The truth is, Mark is battling secrets of his own—secrets Anna knows nothing about. A painful past and an uncertain future threaten to bring his life down around him—and he’ll do anything not to expose her to that. Can she bring him back from the brink of self-destruction before it’s too late, or will she discover that she never really knew him at all?


Congratulations, Leah. We can’t wait to see the 5* reviews flooding in for this one too, it’s another emotional masterpiece!
