Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for this amazing book, I loved Amelia Henley’s first book last year and this one was even better if that’s possible.
Jack & Libby were deeply in love and excited to start their journey together in their new home until life took a totally different direction that just breaks your heart. Libby is totally lost in her grief and desperately trying to keep her head above water whilst making some big decisions that affect not only her future but those of others as well. The emotions are raw and reflective with lots of single events keep taking place which are threading a whole other story together that grows in the background as you continue to read. Sid was introduced early on and I loved the little touches that he bought to the story through his memories of Norma, he was such a key character that you will instantly love and wish he was your grandparent.
This story is brimming with love and highlights how everyone deals with their loss differently, a frank reflection on the depths of grief for a group of individuals whose grief starts to unite them and helps them find a new way forward with new goals and a shared purpose.
They were so in love . . .
And then life changed forever . . .
Will they find happiness again?
Libby and Jack are the happiest they’ve ever been. Thanks to their dear friend, eighty-year-old Sid, they’ve just bought their first house together, and it’s the beginning of the life they’ve always dreamed of.
But the universe has other plans for Libby and Jack and a devastating twist of fate shatters their world.
All of a sudden life is looking very different, and unlikely though it seems, might Sid be the one person who can help Libby and Jack move forward when what they loved the most has been lost?
