Today I am sharing my review for The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver, I was lucky enough to be sent a copy by Ellie at Penguin Randomhouse – thank you I absolutely loved it!!
I loved One Day in December and was really excited to see that Josie Silver was releasing another book, this story sucks you in from the very 1st pages and makes you want to keep reading.
Lydia is the main character and she is lost after losing the love of her life, she is worrying those around her and her mother and sister are making sure she eats and trying to get her to sleep. From the offset you can feel the power of the loss for Lydia and it tugs your heartstrings and draws you further in.
A story oozing with love and loss and it makes you reflect on how would you even contemplate moving on when you had your whole life mapped out. Lydia and her family are all grieving after the tragedy that has struck them and this story touches on how it impacts relationships with others around you and how would you go about building new relationships as you put yourself back together.
A really raw story that makes you think and gives you all of the feels as you read and get to know Lydia and the wonderful love of her life.
What if you could live your great love story again?
Lydia and Freddie. Freddie and Lydia. They’ve been together for almost a decade, and Lydia thinks their love is indestructible.
But she’s wrong. Because on her 27th birthday, Freddie dies in a tragic accident.
So now it’s just Lydia, and all she wants to do is hide indoors and sob ’til her eyes fall out. But Lydia knows that Freddie would want her to live her life well. So, enlisting the help of his best friend and her sister Elle, she takes her first tentative steps into the world and starts to live – perhaps even to love – again.
Then something unbelievable happens, and Lydia gets another chance at her old life with Freddie. But what if there’s someone in her new life who wants her to stay?
A heart-breaking, uplifting story for fans of PS I Love You and Me Before You, this gorgeously romantic novel will make you laugh, cry and remind you of what a wonderful gift it is to love and to be loved.
