#Review Happy Publication Day, today I am sharing my review for The Light in the Hallway by Amanda Prowse #backablogger #publicationday @mrsamandaprowse

Happy Publication Day to the lovely Amanda Prowse, today she releases the heartwarming The Light in the Hallway.

I absolutely love reading Amanda’s books and this book was another superb read that pulls you in and makes you want to keep reading.

Nick and Olly are left reeling after the loss of Kerry and this story is about how piece by piece they start putting their lives back together. Nick learns how to stand up for what he believes in and demonstrates to Olly the importance of continuing to live, love and move on.

A book full of love and strength that is emotionally charged throughout. Amanda has such a way with words that makes you feel like you know these characters and can feel their emotions as they unfold. A brilliant story that will have you reaching for the tissues.

When Nick’s wife Kerry falls ill and dies, he realises for the first time how fragile his happiness has always been, and how much he’s been taking his good life and wonderful family for granted. Now, he suddenly finds himself navigating parenthood alone, unsure how to deal with his own grief, let alone that of his teenage son, Olly.

In the depths of his heartbreak, Nick must find a way to navigate life that pleases his son, his in-laws, his family and his friends—while honouring what Kerry meant to them all. But when it comes to his own emotions, Nick doesn’t know where to begin. Kerry was his childhood sweetheart—but was she really the only one who could ever make him happy?

And in the aftermath of tragedy, can Nick and his son find themselves again?
