OMG I don’t even know where to start this book is heartbreaking and one of my favourite reads of the year, I am not even sure I can do it justice in a review as I loved it that much!
As soon as I picked this book up I knew I was in for the long haul and I read it in under a day over two sittings. I love a book that gives you all of the feels and this book gave me a barrage of emotions throughout. I shed my first tear around 50% and at 80% had to break a box of tissues out.
This book is so heartfelt I could literally feel the words jumping off the page and was so absorbed and emotionally invested in the wonderful Jess & Edie from beginning to end that even now looking back I can feel the emotional punch of this story and the lovely characters that Laura created.
Massive praise to Laura Pearson on this amazing book and all of the feels it bought with it. This is one of those rare books where 5* just isn’t enough!
Dear Edie, I wanted you to know so many things. I wanted to tell you them in person, as you grew. But it wasn’t to be.
Jess never imagined she’d be navigating single motherhood, let alone while facing breast cancer. A life that should be just beginning is interrupted by worried looks, heavy conversations, and the possibility of leaving her daughter to grow up without her.
Propelled by a ticking clock, Jess knows what she has to do: tell her daughter everything. How to love, how to lose, how to forgive, and, most importantly, how to live when you never know how long you have.
