Pop over to my blog to check out my review for the new heartfelt release- The Life We Almost Had by Amelia Henley #backablogger #hqstories #bookreview @msameliahenley @hqstories

Today I am sharing my review for this gorgeous story by Amelia Henley, a truly heartfelt book that I loved from start to finish.

My Review

When I started this book I had no idea of the heart breaking journey it would take me on. Adam & Anna are a couple who have loved eachother fiercely but feel like they lost their way whilst trying for a baby.

This book is a compelling and emotional read, it discusses how the brain can work in mysterious ways and how sometimes we see and hear what we want rather than what might be there. The characters are complex and you get a fantastic insight into the highs and lows of Adam & Anna’s relationship and how sometimes the world works in mysterious ways.

A wonderful love story that I absolutely loved, my heart broke whilst reading but I was left feeling calm and restored as I reached the end. I highly recommend reading this book with a box of chocolates and tissues.

Book Blurb

This is not a typical love story, but it’s our love story.

Anna wasn’t looking for love when Adam swept her off her feet but there was no denying their connection, and she believed they would be together forever.

Years later, cracks have appeared in their relationship. Anna is questioning whether their love can really be eternal when a cruel twist of fate delivers a crushing blow, and Anna and Adam are completely lost to one another. Now, Anna needs Adam more than ever, but the way back to him has life-changing consequences.

Is a second chance at first love really worth the sacrifice? Anna needs to decide and time is running out…

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
