Excellent - you won't want to put it down,
By A Customer
This review is from: Someone Like You (Paperback)The book, at first, appeared daunting by its thickness. An inevitably large tome!!
Upon reading the first page however I knew I would be hooked. The book is a delightful insight into the lives of three very different women, of which the reader can see aspects of herself in them all. They initially meet on holiday in Egypt and become firm friends, despite their differences (or because of!).
Emma with the difficult and unenviable situation with her mother and her desperate longing for a baby.
Leonie bravely ended her 10-year marriage and is now searching for her one true love.
Hannah, hurt by men and claiming her independence.
Cathy Kelly has an inane knack of bringing the characters so true to life you really begin to understand and share the pain that these women go through and feel as though you are there with them. Having experienced similar, Emma's situation with her mother was portrayed so accurately and with such compassion that I actually cried.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this to all you holiday makers as the "Beach Book of the Year". I actually took time out of my socialising to stop in and read this book, it was that good!! It was just a pity that the book had to end.
