Uplifting tale of two people looking for a future
My rating: 4 out of 5
1 year after the death of his wife, Phil (aged 60) feels alone and lost. Holly (aged 26) is just about managing to keep a brave face on after the sudden death of her husband, also a year before. This is the wonderful story of how they meet, and help each other. A story of friendship, life as it really is, and how very different people can help one another.
I was completely involved in Holly and Phil’s stories, told in alternating chapters. The characters are so real, that I just had to keep reading to see how things were getting on in their lives. I smiled, cried and laughed with them, and put aside chores to keep reading! Overall this is a book of hope, of overcoming the impossible and finding a future in life after bereavement – but most of all it’s the most wonderful story of two people.
This book should have had a 5* rating from me, but due to the number of minor editing errors, I have given it 4*s. However it speaks volumes about the book that, given the editing errors, not only did I finish the book, but I loved every moment of it!
